Higher Morwell Wildflowers

Past Years

The wildflower patch was started in Autumn 2015 when an unmowed area in the north-east corner was cleared and seeded with mixed wildflowers. Some were successful and grew the following year, many didn’t. Since then we have tried different methods of clearing, and generally added more specific seed varieties each year to try and achieve the balance we want. Below are flowers we have identified from 2018 onwards, both in the wildflower patch itself and occasionally elsewhere in the garden.
