Wildflowers

Faced with the exotica available in your average garden centre, it is all too easy to forget our native British species. Not only are they beautiful, elegant plants that look 'just right' in nearly every garden, they are the plants that our native British wildlife is best suited to, simply because the flora and fauna of these islands have evolved together, ensuring a perfect ecological fit. So, a butterfly looking for nectar will be much happier finding a patch of Scabious in your garden than any amount of saucer-sized double-flowered blooms.

When a robin is searching for grubs to feed its chicks in spring it knows that our native wildflowers are a far better hunting ground than the showiest Rhododendron. We offer lots of beautiful British flowering plants, all grown locally from truly native stock.

Whatever the size of your garden, we urge you to give over some space, no matter how small, to encouraging wildlife. The result can be a garden filled with the sounds and colours of birds, bees and butterflies, the very essence of a British summer. Remember, when you plant native British species, you are working with nature, everything goes together and the result suddenly becomes much more than just the sum of its parts.

As always, if you need any more information just give us a call on 01981 500391 and we'll do our best to help.
