Tower Hamlets Council is offering a free packet of wildflower seeds to residents, as part of the implementation of the Biodiversity Action Plan. The seeds are Landlife‘s “Butterfly & Bumblebee Border” mix, a selection of colourful annuals and perennials which provide plenty of nectar for insects. As well as helping wildlife, these wild flowers will brighten up a corner of your garden, housing estate or school, or even a planter or window box.
The seeds can be collected from any Idea Store or library, the three city farms in the borough (Mudchute, Spitalfields and Stepney), or from the Soanes Centre in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park. There are still copies of the Wildlife Gardening Pack, produced last year by the Council in partnership with London Wildlife Trust, available free from the same outlets. If you can’t get to one of these places, or they’ve run out of seeds, e-mail the Biodiversity Officer and we can send you your seeds and gardening pack.
So why not collect your free seeds and gardening pack, and make your corner of Tower Hamlets a brighter, more wildlife-friendly place.
