Wildflower Meadows are areas of permanent grass where wildflowers grow.
Why are wildflower meadows important?
Wildflower meadows create fantastic habitats for birds, small animals, and insects. They are bright, colourful, and packed with different flowers. Wildflower meadows are bursting with life, and you may see butterflies, grasshoppers, hedgehogs, or crickets!
Does Amelia Trust have any wildflower meadows?
Yes we do, but they don’t look like wildflower meadows yet… We have started planting and we are hoping to have wildflower meadows by next year.
How should you enjoy wildflower meadows?
If you see a wildflower meadow, you’ll often see a sign explaining that the area has been sectioned off specifically to become a wildflower meadow. Never walk on wildflower meadows. Instead, make sure you stick to the paths around the edges, and admire the colour and beauty from there.
