Stonehouse Creek wildflower meadow

Stonehouse CreekStonehouse wildflower meadow was created in October 2012 with the addition of 600 wildflower plug plants with help from a local school. An orchard was created in 2013.

The site is located next to the Stonehouse Creek/Victoria Park Cycle route.

The wildflower meadow was created 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
  • Betony
  • Common knapweed
