The wildflower meadow was created in the winter of 2014/2015 through Plymouth's Buzzing, a joint project between Buglife and us, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project involved local schools and communities in conserving bees, butterflies, hoverflies and other pollinating insects.
More wildflower seeds were sown in October 2015, with species including:
- Yellow rattle
- Common knapweed
