Wild flowers not only look banging, they also have an important role in our eco-system providing food and habitat for pollinators like bee’s and butterflies, which we need to grow food. So, when I heard that 97% of the UK’s wild flower meadows have been lost since the 1930’s, I was pretty staggered and worried. Luckily Grow Wild are giving out free wild flower seeds to anyone that registers and lives in the UK. I know that sometimes environmental crisis’ seem too big to solve, but I really believe that individual actions add up and make a big difference. Just sowing one packet of seeds is a positive contribution to tackling this problem.
They are very easy to grow because they like poor soil and are low maintenance. You just need a spot that gets a lot of sunshine. You can sow them into a container filled with soil or directly into bare earth. It’s so easy and the rewards are massive, not will you help protect the future of wildflowers, you’ll also be rewarded with beautiful blooms. It’s a win win situation people! Get Growing!
I teamed up with Grow Wild to make some How to Sow videos. Check out the Grow Wild website for news about free seed give-aways.
