Master Landscapes have created many wildflower gardens, and by creating your own wildflower area you will be helping the many species that benefit from them.

Wildflowers are becoming increasingly scarce in the countryside due to the loss of many traditional habitats such as hedgerows, hay meadows and chalk grassland. The extensive use of pesticides in farmland and a move to monocultures have also drastically reduced our wildflower numbers. As a result, wildlife gardens are becoming a stronghold for some insects, particularly bumblebees

The best plants for bees and other wildlife in your garden are often cottage garden flowers and native species. Such flowers can look fantastic in a garden setting as they are easy to grow and are pretty resistant to disease and pests. Native wildflowers, as well as grasses, provide lots of food for a variety of animals. There is pollen and nectar for insects such as bumblebees and hoverflies, seeds for birds, and leaves for herbivores such as bank voles.
