Barenbrug UK Wildflower Range

It is estimated that around 95% of British wildflower meadows were lost after the Second World War – but thankfully, we are now seeing increased interest in native wildflowers – thanks in part to environmental stewardship schemes. Establishing flower rich margins on the edges of fields can be hugely beneficial – helping farmers maintain a healthy ecosystem and attracting insects, which in turn can help to pollinate crops.

 

With around 1,500 different wildflowers available in the UK, it can be hard for farmers to know which wildflowers to grow. To make it easier, Barenbrug has added 21 wildflower mixtures to the range of seeds it offers.

 

To demonstrate the value of wildflowers, we’ve been trialling some of the mixtures at Cropvale, adding colour and interest to the site as well as improving its biodiversity. If you are interested in adding wildflowers to your margins, August and September are the ideal months to sow seeds. Our range of wildflowers include both annual and perennial mixtures and can be pure wildflower or mixed with grass to satisfy a range of situations and requirements.
