wildflowerhour supports Plantlife’s campaign to keep road verges safe for wildlife. These unused spots by the side of the highway can become mini meadows, and in some cases are the only locations where very rare wild plants are still growing anywhere in this country.
You can read more about the campaign and how you can help save our verges here. And #wildflowerhour members can join in praising councils who are managing verges well on Twitter. Just tweet the picture of the beautiful verge, along with the Twitter handle of the council that’s done a good job allowing wild flowers to flourish and the #wildflowerhour hashtag. You can do this any time of any day of the week – and we’ll add it to this round up and let Plantlife know about another council that’s following their lead.
