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:

Cottage garden
Meadow flowers
Wetland and pond
Woodland or shade

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 15-04-19 Marsh marigold (Caltha palustris)

Marsh marigold is a lovely plant for the pond edge and wet ground including wet woodland, and damp meadows. It is relatively easy to grow as it spreads readily to form clumps which can be divided later in the Autumn. The flowers are at their best in April when the golden yellow blooms are a spectacular sight, attracting butterflies and bees on a warm Spring day.
Other features:
Marsh marigold is often called Kingcups due to the goblet shape of the flowers.
Wildlife attracted:
The large leaves are ideal for wildlife, offering pond side shelter for insects, and frogs. The large flowers are also an early source of nectar.

 

Marsh marigold: a versatile wild flower, perfect for a pop of colour at a pond edge or in a wet area of the garden.
