To create a proper wildflower meadow requires a big garden with space to set aside for the meadow, and a lot of time and effort. Few of us have a big garden, and time is often short.
There are easier ways to grow a mini wildflower area which, as the image right shows, looks equally lovely creating a colourful area in the garden attractive to bees, butterflies and other pollinators. To grow wildflowers in this way you need a small patch and a limited amount of time.
The trick is to buy a self-seeded roll of wildflowers which still requires preparation, but germinates easily, and produces a great result.
