Wildflowers are a great addition to any garden for a wide number of reasons. Their beautiful vibrance brings a radiant splash of colour to any outdoor space, and their varying shapes and sizes are totally unique and promise something new every year with every new bloom.

Not only are wildflowers beautiful, but they also do a great amount to support your local ecosystem. Bees and butterflies love them, and bees are great pollinators so their presence will help your garden flourish and support local biodiversity.

feeding birds in winter

When the temperature starts to fall, lots of natural sources of bird food suddenly become unavailable. The berries, seeds and fruits that they might normally find in the hedgerows have all been eaten and the plants themselves have started to die back.
