The wild flower meadow at the Wilderness Project Seaford allotments, continues to flourish.
The meadow in its first season of flowering. The site was previously covered in brambles, sycamores and rubbish and the major clear out was funded by the Big Lottery.
The wild flower meadow colour in this year is from the annual species such as field poppy, cornflower and corn chamomile. Next summer the meadow will come into its own when the perennial wild flowers will mature, adding to the riot of colour.
While the new native hedge saplings are growing along the site boundary, the wild flower meadow provides ground cover and extra food for wild life in our new bio diverse corridor.
