partial ecosystems and in collections of plants that perform to the
requirements of site and grower. The gardener should use both seeds and
plants as the range available will be greatest.

range of species to choose when growing wildflowers, from a mixture
suitable 'under a dry shaded hedge' to 'in full sun' or in 'a difficult
wet patch', Design By Nature Irish wildflowers offer a solution.

well as mini meadows without grass. Wildflowers grown in the garden
will attract beneficial insects.
