British Wildflowers for cottage garden, meadow, woodland or shade, wetland and ponds.
At PlantWild we are passionate about growing British wildflowers, trees and shrubs. Our plants are of UK native provenance and many are fantastic for attracting bees, butterflies and insects to your garden.
Click on a link below to explore each of our wildflower categories to find our 9cm pots and plug plants:
Our wildflower plants are grown in peatfree compost and are available in either 9cm pots or as plug plants via mail order; both of which are great for any garden enthusiasts, schools, landscapers, conservationists and community groups.
Whether you are looking to create a meadow area, woodland, or wetland, our comprehensive range of plug plant collections will suit a variety of environments. We have recently added an Apothecary collection to include medicinal and herbal wildflower plants. It is also easy for you to create your own plug plant collection from our full range of wildflowers
We carefully package our plants for transport, being as eco friendly as possible. We use local hay and recycled cardboard as much as we can so an order will arrive to your door in the best condition, within 24 hours of leaving our nursery.
The addition of wildflowers to your garden will help to attract a diversity of wildlife, and we now stock a select range of contemporary wild bird feeders to attract garden birds to any size of garden. Transforming even a small area into a new habitat will quickly help to increase wildlife including insects, birds and mammals, and create an interesting area full of new sounds and colour.
If you have a specific project in mind just get in touch and we will be happy to help.

Our wildflower of the week 19-08-19 Greater knapweed
The Greater knapweed can easily be distinguished from Common knapweed by it’s bigger and blousier flower head . The large pinky-purple flowers look great at the back of a border, in a wildlife garden or will add a splash of colour to your meadow during August. In a neglected patch, Greater knapweed is ideal as it loves less fertile soil and it will bring some long lasting Summer colour, whilst providing a haven for butterflies.
In the wild, it is often found in dry, chalky grassland; however it will grow in a whole range of soil types
Butterflies and moths are especially attracted to knapweeds. The Marbled white butterfly in particular will often seek out purple flowers as a favourite. In addition finches are often attracted to the seed heads.
