This book provides an easy-to-read, informative and highly practical text on creating and preserving wildflower meadows, from the smallest garden meadow to large-scale field projects.

Combining ecological sustainanbility and hands on gardening this book explains how these 'overgrown' green oases support and sustain a fast-vanishing population of essential wildlife including insects, mammals, birds and flora.

Whether they are dry, wet, natural or created, Making a Wildflower Meadow explains how to manage and care for your meadow in sympathy with nature and teaches you what to look for when first appraising a meadow, when to mow, when to sow, when to weed and when to plant.

This is also a history of Sticky Wicket in Dorset and its horticultural developments - the lessons learned, and the experience gained along with a frightening insight into how over-cultivation by farmers and acquisition by property developers is slowly but surely destroying England's green and pleasant land.
