Wildflower Border – Picture Special

Leading on from my recent post on how to plant your very own wild-flower border, I thought it would be good to include some more pictures to give you some extra inspiration on what to plant.

Personally I love having some wild-flowers in the garden, we’ve started to try and attract more pollinators into the garden, and the bees are obsessed with the Borage each year we grow it.

Cornflowers – Need I say more, the different shades of blue bring a calm sense to a warm summers day

Don’t feel restricted to only sowing or planting wild-flowers in borders in your garden.

If you wanted to you could always sow them into containers, ideal if you’ve only got a small outdoor space like a patio. Maybe you’re considering starting your own container paradise. Then if you are, take a look at my other picture posts for inspiration.

What do you think? Do you have a wild-flower border in your own garden, and if you do, has it grown well? What advice would you give to others before they start creating their own wild-flower border?

Please do tell me about your own experiences in the comments below, and share on Pinterest, Twitter or Facebook so that everyone can experience the joy of seeing a waving sea of wild-flower heads.
