About this book

If you have ever contemplated a wildflower meadow area in your garden, Making Garden Meadows informs you how to create one and how to look after it to ensure its continued beauty through many years. Illustrated with photographs taken in her own garden, Jenny Steel guides you simply through the process to help you provide a beautiful area full of wildflowers and teaming with wildlife. As well as chapters on how to make a meadow from scratch, there is information on creating a 'meadow effect' in an existing lawn, making a spring-flowering meadow, and how to enhance areas of rough grass by planting with suitable wildflowers. If native cornfield annuals such as poppies and cornflowers are your passion, Making Garden Meadows explains how to grow these too and how to ensure that they continue to seed and flourish in your garden. A native wildflower meadow is a visual delight and can attract a huge variety of invertebrates, especially bees and butterflies, as well as vertebrates such as amphibians, birds and small mammals to even the smallest garden.
