Why are Wildflowers Important?

One of the biggest benefits that wildflowers provide is providing bees, butterflies and other pollinators with food sources throughout the seasons. They are an intrinsic part of the food chain for most, as they also provide an important source of foods for birds in wintertime. 

Ecological Benefits of Wildflowers

Most of our favourite fruits and vegetables rely on pollinating to produce a good, healthy crop and this job is undertaken by pollinators that depend on wildflowers. Without wildflowers, artificial pollination would be required which is very costly, time consuming and not an eco-friendly option.

The roots of wildflowers extend deep into the soil, where they store water, nutrients and hold onto carbon that would otherwise be released into the air. Creating and supporting wildflower habitats can help in restoring the crucial ecosystem. 

Grow Wildflowers Yourself

In every UK order, we are including a wildflower seed packet for you to grow your own wildflower meadow. Almost any plot of land can accommodate wildflowers, whether it be in your garden or in a pot, therefore be imaginative with where you plant them! These are natural and low maintenance but still very beautiful. 

Sharing is alway important, so help us by spreading the word about the importance of wildflowers on the environment!
