To continue the theme of biodiversity, we have planted some native wildflower meadows to let people experience the wide range of Irish flora and to help preserve this rich heritage. Changes in land use have put pressure on the traditional ecosystems of rural Ireland. In times past, meadows were not cut until July or August, which gave native species of wildflowers time to flower and seed. Now, with early cutting of meadows and the use of fertilisers, the variety of wildflowers has dramatically decreased.
We source our seed from Design by Nature who harvest seeds of native origin.
