Drive to Restore Wildflowers 12 April 2012

New drive to restore our lost wildflowers

Green–fingered groups from across Northern Ireland are set to get into the gardening spirit this weekend in an attempt to bring back Northern Ireland’s lost wildflowers.

Around 150 square metres of wildflower meadow will be sown across the province this weekend — marking the launch of the UK’s biggest environmental campaign, RHS Britain in Bloom 2012. Groups and schools from Londonderry, Lisburn and Ballymena among many others will be sowing some of the millions of wildflower seeds provided by the RHS over a 48–hour period.

They will be among 1,200 groups from across the UK getting involved.

Helping to launch the first National Gardening Week — which begins on Monday — the scheme will help revive the province’s wildflower populations.

In serious decline for a number of decades, some 97% of wildflower meadows were lost across England and Wales between the 1930s and 1980s.

Presenter Sarah Raven — who has presented Bees, Butterflies And Blooms on the BBC — said the UK was “in a process of rediscovering our love for wildflowers” and the project was a valiant attempt at rejuvenating much of the lost wild plant life.

The event will take place on April 14 and 15. For further information or to find out how you can get involved visit the website at www.rhs.org.uk/getinvolved
