WHY WILDFLOWER MEADOWS?
We have lost 97% of our wildflower meadows in the UK. Wildflower meadows are incredibly diverse habitats, supporting a wealth of flowers, insects and other animals. Most of our wildflower meadows have disappeared due to changes in farming practices, with others being lost as our cities, towns and villages have expanded to cater for an increasing UK population. Those meadows that remain continue to be at risk through neglect and inappropriate management.
The good news is that we can reverse this trend through the creation of new meadows using native seed and reintroducing the right management to them, such as hay-cutting and light grazing. Wildflower meadows are a key habitat to many increasingly rare wildflowers, such as orchids, and provide essential sources of food for some of our favourite insects, such as bumblebees and butterflies, in an otherwise hostile environment. A little known fact is that healthy wildflower meadows can also store significant amounts of carbon in their soils. They therefore contribute much to a healthy ecosystem.

All projects are carried out using low-key best practice methods and are managed by our professional ecological and agricultural teams.
The Future Forest Company manages many sites which currently have degraded meadows or have the potential to see new meadows created for the future. We have just started to manage several sites, including Dumyat, which have degraded meadows which need some help to return to their best. We have also identified places where we can create new meadows for the future. We will only use native wildflower seeds in our sowing activities and we will only team up with local flower nurseries who can grow on our wildflower plants without using peat. To help do all this work, we have our own in-house Ecologist and Agriculture specialists who manage these areas and who are now embarking on site surveys and planning to ensure we do things right. This will include monitoring how wildflowers, bees and butterflies respond to our management.
