Top 5 Wildflower gardens in the UK...
This month we're growing wild. With every order from this site we are adding a FREE packet of wildflower seeds. As well as enjoying our scents inspired by nature, now you can grow your own floral surprise with your Lost in Scent seeds too!
To celebrate we share our top 5 wildflower gardens and meadows in the UK....
1. New Grove Meadows, Monmouth. Coswslip, orchids and knapweed grow in unrestricted fashion in this well-kept garden. With beautiful surrounding mountain scenery, the best time to visit the meadow is in June or July.
2. Askrigg Bottoms Meadow. Named a site of special scientific interest, this meadow near Wensleydale's picturesque village, Askrigg, is a summertime delight of grasses and flowers such as cranesbill and great burnet. A walk through the grasses followed by a dip in the nearby River Ure.
3. Perrivale Wood. An oasis in suburbia. Perrivale, West London, may not be known for its rolling green meadows but once a year Perrivale Wood is a sea of bluebells. Protected from the public, there's an open day once a year in April to see the woods in their blue splendour.
4. Stourhead. Wiltshire's Stourhead gardens are a peaceful heaven of lawns, woods and a tranquil lake. Famous for the location of the rain-soaked proposal in BBC's Pride and Prejudice adaptation.
5. Queen Elizabeth Roof Garden. A wildflower meadow in the centre of London? Visit this garden atop the Southbank Centre for its specially cultivated collection of grasses, herbs, wild flowers and sweeping views across the Thames and beyond.
