Chilcott Celebrates the Coronation with Welsh Wildflower Seeds for Sustainable Planting
The King's Coronation is a momentous occasion that calls for celebration. The coronation ceremony itself is steeped in tradition and pageantry, and truly captures the essence of the nation's heritage.
We have a gift for you
To celebrate the occasion of the King's Coronation, Chilcott will be offering a packet of Welsh grown cornflower seeds in each of our gift sets from the new range. This is our way of contributing to the continued beauty of the British Isles and supporting sustainable practices. We hope with these seeds you have time to plant your very own mini meadow as we have.
The benefits of planting a wildflower meadow
By planting a wild mini meadow in your own garden, you are creating an excellent way to enhance the natural ecosystem in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. Wildflowers are an important source of food but also shelter for many species of insects, birds, and small mammals. By creating this habitat, you are helping to promote biodiversity and support what is, as we already know, the delicate balance of nature.
Create your own mini ecosystem
A wild mini meadow will attract a wide variety of wildlife, creating a miniature self-sustaining ecosystem. By planting wildflowers, you create a habitat that is attractive to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, which are essential for the health of many plant species. These pollinators provide food for birds and small mammals, creating a chain of life that is both beautiful and functional.
Wild meadows require little maintenance
After some initial soil preparation, they are low maintenance, requiring very little upkeep. Unlike traditional lawns that need frequent mowing, the beauty of a wildflower area is that it can be left to grow naturally, & only needs to be cut back & raked up in the autumn.
Sustainability is at the heart of Chilcott, from the way we grow our botanicals to the wool that we use. Chilcott is a truly British business. We believe we should tread lightly in the world and appreciate what we have around us, which is why we would encourage you to plant a wild flower area in your garden..
