It’s been a busy year and Christmas is just around the corner. The High Street is packed and sleigh bells are ringing but if gift-giving inspiration is proving elusive then you’re not alone. But never fear as the Wildflower Turf team have hand-picked the perfect list of potential presents for you to peruse.
From books to bee hotels we’ve got Christmas all wrapped up!
Written by our very-own James Hewetson-Brown, this is the definitive guide to everything you need to know about establishing a wildflower meadow. Filled with case studies this pragmatic guide will provide you with everything you need to grow and maintain a beautiful flowering meadow.
This year Wildflower Turf partnered with the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew to bring The Hive installation to life. Visitors to the attraction make their way through our lush and healthy wildflower meadow before entering the incredible 17 metre high structure that transports visitors to life inside a bee colony. This has to bee seen to be bee-lieved and entry to The Hive is included with Kew Garden Day Admission tickets.
The 2017 Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Calendar has been created using stunning photographic images submitted by members of the public. All the images show the beautiful wildlife and stunning landscapes that can be seen across Hampshire & the Isle of Wight with 100% of calendar sale proceeds going to support the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.
All I (really) want for Christmas is a profihopper. The Amazone PH125 will do the job nicely, giving excellent results, and is perfect for mowing and scarifying parks, playgrounds, residential areas and environmental areas. With a unique collecting and compacting system this profihopper is perfectly suited for the care of all green spaces.
If all that mowing is making you hungry then look no further than Silver Frame’s raw wildflower honey. Medium sweet in taste and rich in antioxidants, a mere two spoonful’s a day is all it will take to help to build up pollen tolerance. It’s also quite tasty on toast.
On the subject of honey, bees play an incredibly important role in pollination and ensuring ecosystem equilibrium, but the number of bees in the UK is in decline. Our Bee Hotel is the perfect present for any nature lover, wildflower grower, fruit tree obsessive or anyone that wants to do their bit for bees.
