Pretty Wild Things


For somebody who much prefers winter and the rain you would think I would be hating life right now. I’ve never really been much of a spring/summer person but this year that has changed. I am definitely appreciating the weather a lot more recently and it is probably due to my little veg patch and having just sown flower seeds. I cannot wait until they bloom because this means I can pop them into vases and dot them around the house.

Grow Wild, which is a new 4 year campaign is looking for people to come together in order to grow Uk’s native flowers. I actually heard about the campaign before I was contacted by them and had already ordered the free seed packets they were sending out. Grow Wild feel strongly about our lack of wild flowers and have produced some eye opening research. In the last 70 or so years, 97% of our meadows have disappeared. This affects our wild life - have you noticed the lack of butterflies in recent years?

And yes I have already been scouring Pinterest to try and get some inspiration for wild flower arrangements. So colourful!

Also did you know Peonies also come in a wild form too? Still as pretty.

  1. Sounds like a great campaign :) There really isn't anything as satisfying as growing your own garden and watching your flowers bloom. Hope that your flowers grow well!

    1. Same, I tried looking for fake ones but they look tacky. The real plant is definitely a winner! x
