After watching an episode of gardeners world on BBC, Monty don reminded me that it was National Garden Week this week and the main focus was to encourage more people to grow wildflowers within their garden. Many wild flowers are perennials and will grace your garden year after year, often self-seeding themselves. So once the initial seed has been sown you can get pleasure from these plants year, after year, after year. They are also very beneficial to all forms of wildlife, especially the butterflies and bees which help with pollinating other plants growing in your garden.
I managed to pickup these boxes of wildflower seeds for around £1 this week and I shall be scattering these on a few bits of ground around my allotment to encourage the pollinating insects to visit my vegetable flowers. Not only will they be lovely to look at but they should also smell great too and help with producing some fantastic crops.
