Wildflower meadows

Since 2012 we've been getting Plymouth Buzzing! The city wide project is part-funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and led by Buglife and us.

Volunteers have helped plant over 5,000 wild flower plug plants and 1,900 flowering bulbs to compliment the 52 kg of wildflower seed that has been sown.

Wildflower meadows are managed by a single annual cut in late summer/autumn and removing the hay. Wild flowers thrive on nutrient poor soils so if managed correctly, each year they should get better and better!
