This year’s wonderful wild flowers have started to bloom across the Wyre Forest District.
The seeds were sown by Wyre Forest District Council several months ago in preparation for the summer.
Last year’s wild flowers proved popular with residents and the council received lots of positive feedback and compliments.
This year, the Council’s Parks and Open Spaces Team has sown a blend of different seed mixtures which can be seen in Brinton Park, QEII Jubilee Gardens and several ring roads.
The mix has purposely been created for a stunning visual effect to encourage bees, hoverflies and butterflies to pollinate. It is estimated the beds will continue to flower until the first frost. The sowing regime has been purposely designed for a continuation of blooms throughout the summer and beyond.
Councillor Ian Hardiman, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Operational Services said:
“We are committed in keeping our parks safe, clean and looking good. The wild flowers were a fantastic addition to our parks and open spaces last year and the team were pleased with the positive feedback. We hope residents will enjoy them just as much this year.”
Wyre Forest District Council would like residents to send in their own pictures of the wild flowers. Like us on Facebook (Wyre Forest District Council) or Tweet us (WyreForestDC) on Twitter and send in your pictures. We’d love to see them!
