In 2014 Doncaster council trialed three areas of wildflower planting with a variety of Euroflor seed mixes. Low ground cover plants were sown along a central reservation with more naturalistic plants along a wide grass verge.
“We were looking at ways to reduce grass cutting and wildflower planting was an option. The areas were in full bloom throughout the summer prompting an influx of compliments on social media.”
Comments ranged from ‘an amazing entrance into Doncaster’ to ‘an enormous benefit to an abundance of wildlife’
Due to last year’s success Doncaster council extend the project further across the borough.
