Wildflower meadows

As well as brightening up the borough, wildflower meadows are absolutely vital for our ecosystem; providing pollinators such as bees and butterflies and other insects with food, shelter and places to breed. They also play an important role in winter as a source of food for birds and small mammals.

For 2021, following positive feedback from residents, South Ribble Borough Council has expanded its wildflower planting programme to include 14 new locations across the borough. Seeds will now be sown shortly after Easter in the following 31 areas (* = new for 2021):
