Wildflower Planting Around Wyre Forest

Cornflowers, poppies, corn cockle and other wild flowers will be blooming across the Wyre Forest District again this summer.

Our Parks and Open Spaces team is preparing for the new season displays of flower meadows on the district’s traffic islands and in parks. This will be the third year that pollen rich wild flowers will be blooming throughout the summer and beyond until the first frost.

Cultivating wild flowers rather than growing bedding plants from seed has already saved the council around £30,000 over the last two years and has been very popular with residents and visitors alike.  The scheme also aims to improve the diversity and abundance of bees, hoverflies, and butterflies.
