THE WILD FLOWER MEADOW
The flower meadow will cover 8,000 square meters of ground to provide a beautiful scenic environment for wedding ceremonies and nature walks.
Biodiversity is a key factor in climate change so this wild flower meadow will play its part by providing habitat and food for insects, bees and small animals which in turn provides food for all manner of birds and wildlife.
Part of our policy at Natural Events is to have a positive impact on the natural environment around us by encouraging biodiversity and growth. Though we are clearing large areas of land we will be putting in new native trees and plants with the sole purpose of encouraging biodiversity to boost the surrounding natural habitats.

THE STORY SO FAR
This is the field we have chosen for our wiled flower meadow.
We are going to start off with a small test patch first year and see how we get on before taking on the bigger challenge of 8,000 square meters.
The first step to a successful flower meadow is to kill back all weeds and grass to bear soil, this will stay covered till autumn when the soil will be turned and seeds sown.
We have had great growth only 3 weeks after sowing the seed in late September 2020, now we just have to wait till spring time.
We have cleared back the overgrown hedge and have started rebuilding the original stone wall.
The hedge has also been planted with a number of flowering trees and bushes.
