New wildflower meadow locations announced

The locations of four new wildflower meadows in Plymouth, which help local bee and butterfly populations to thrive, have now been announced.

Plymouth City Council has identified four new sites across the city to establish new wildflower meadows, which will be prepared and planted this month, when ground conditions are good for sowing, and will be flowering by the summer.

The sites will be:

  • Staddiscombe Road green space
  • Teat’s Hill
  • Delamere Road
  • Tamar Bridge roundabout

They will also improve existing wildflower meadow sites at North Cross and Derry’s Cross to make them better for wildlife and add more colour to the local landscape.
