Wildflower plug planting gets underway

We have started wild flower plug planting for the meadow. The plugs will enhance the lower 1/3 of the site which was planted with wildflower seed from Bell Sykes Coronation Meadow and Gait Barrows Reserve in Autumn 2020. Thank you to Lancaster City Council for use of the poly tunnel space. We are growing once common wild flowers which are found naturally in this area. Not only will these provide pollen and nectar for pollinators they are the larval food plants for many species of butterflies and moths.
