About wildflower seeds

Wildflower plants provide lots of things that insects need: food in the form of leaves, nectar and pollen, also shelter and places to breed. In return, insects pollinate the wildflowers, enabling them to develop seeds and spread to grow in other places.

The insects themselves are eaten by birds, bats, amphibians, reptiles and small mammals, all of whom contribute to the cycle of life. During winter when there is less food available, wildflower seeds can also be an important food source for birds and small mammals. Wildflowers can also be really helpful to keep soil healthy. When wildflowers become established and spread their roots, they stabilise the surrounding soil.

In The Records

Since the 1930s, the UK has lost nearly 97% of wild flower meadows. Awash with colourful flowers and grasslands, they support a myriad of insects and mammals. Our very own mini jungles that can even capture a vast amount of carbon from pollution.
