Improve the wildflower biodiversity on your ride!
97% of wildflower meadows have been lost since the 1930s due to construction and changes in agriculture.
We have put together a selection UK wildflowers that are very scarce, by scattering these seeds in to the road verges on your rides you will be helping to improve your local area's bio-diversity and provide a valuable source of nutrition for pollenators whose numbers are in a catastrophic decline.
Wildflowers and wildflower meadows have many benefits for our wildlife including:
Attracting insects that can help protect crops from pests
Provide a food source for bees, other pollinators, birds and small mammals
Provide wildlife with shelter and a place to breed
Roots can help stabilize the soil, once the plant is established
If you don't want to take them on your ride, scatter in your garden or in a window box.
