Wildflower meadows

As well as brightening up the borough, our urban wildflower meadows are vital for our ecosystem; providing pollinators such as bees and butterflies and other insects with food, shelter and places to breed.

For 2022, following positive feedback from residents, South Ribble Borough Council has expanded its urban wildflower planting programme to include 10 new locations across the borough. Seeds were sown shortly after Easter in the following 45 areas (* = new for 2022)
