We use both ornamental plants and wildflowers to create a garden with a long season of interest that supports as many species of wildlife as it can. Native flowers are, unsurprisingly, good for wildlife. Most of the wild plants are common waste-land weeds but many of these are attractive in gardens too.
All of the wildflowers growing here have proved themselves happy with the conditions and need little more maintenance than an occasional 'graze' with a pair of shears.
We also grow a selection of coloured-leaf forms of native plants. These are often more ornamental than the original wild plants but still support wildlife.
