Charles Flower: How we are bringing wild flowers back to the countryside
A traditional meadow full of wild flowers is a rare sight today, but it is not too late to restore them and create new ones. Charles Flower is passionate about restoring the countryside. He has pioneered practical methods of wild flower restoration on his own farm, where he grows wild flower seed crops and runs restoration workshops. Charles Flower has proved it is possible to plan for diversity, harvest seed, propagate it and create new meadows, woods, hedges and ponds so that wild flowers can be successfully re-established in the countryside and in our gardens. This ensures a supply of nectar over a long period which will help to entice back countless butterflies and insects as well as the farmland birds which depend on them. Signed copies of his book, Where Have All The Flowers Gone, will be available to purchase in the bar.
