Plant a mini wildflower meadow in your garden

Regardless of the size of your garden, there is space for a mini wildlflower meadow. In fact you don't even need a garden, as you can grow wildflowers in a window box. If your garden is small, they can be grown in a raised bed, border, planter, or instead of a garden lawn. If your garden is larger then perhaps grow the mini meadow at the end of the garden, or a side lawn, or a strip down the side of a driveway. Growing is easy, just sow the seeds (Native wildflower seed mixes are widely available) and by summer you will have beautiful flowers growing. At the end of summer these can be sycthed or strimmed, so it is a low maintenance alternative to a turf lawn that needs cutting regularly. The wildflowers will attract butterflies and bees to your garden.
