Wildflower meadow interview with Radio Leicester
Earlier this month Bridget Blair from Radio Leicester interviewed Sharon regarding our wildflower meadow at Beefayre HQ.
A hundred years ago, the British countryside was full of beautiful and colourful wildflower meadow. But a staggering 97 per cent of them have disappeared since the 1930’s, that’s over 7.5 million acres of them.
The good news is you don’t necessarily need acres of garden to help plant up habitat. You can create a really useful food source for all our pollinators by planting up pots on a veranda, or do some ‘guerrilla gardening’ and scatter wildflower seeds on scrappy ground, common areas and verges! These plants thrive in the margins and don’t need nutrient rich soil or looking after. Sow the seeds and listen out for the buzz!
