Wildflower meadows bring so much joy to the garden and the landscape around us, giving a myriad of insects, including bees, moths and butterflies a place to breed and forage, as well as offering a stunning show of flowersfor us to enjoy. In this one-day workshop we will be looking at the different ways of creating a wildflower meadow as well as the all-important on-going maintenance, including when and how to cut.
