North East England: Why Plant Locally-Sourced Wildflowers?

The North East of England provides the perfect environment for wildflower growth, thanks to its famously wet weather, rich soil and abundant sunshine. But why should you opt for locally-sourced wildflower seeds when you’re planting in this part of the world?

Local seeds are specially adapted to the North East’s unique climate. This means they can more easily withstand both the cold winter months and hot summers of the region. Not only that, but local species also provide a more fantastic range of colours and blooms – so you can have a more spectacular garden.

In addition to being better adapted to the North East climate, wildflower seeds from this region also benefit other local flora and fauna. For example, many species attract beneficial insects that help pollinate your plants and protect them from pests. This allows your garden to thrive and makes it an essential part of the region’s natural beauty.

Wildflower seeds for Tyneside are grown and harvested locally in northern England, so you know where your flowers come from.

Planting native species also helps with land conservation since some native species have become rare due to shrinking habitats.

Here are a few tips when buying local wildflower seeds for the Tyneside area:

  1. Buy British native wildflower seeds: and leave more biodiversity for other plant life to blossom.
  2. Make sure to buy native species suited for the region’s climate and soil type.
  3. Look for “pollinator-friendly” wildflowers: these plants attract more bees and butterflies, which helps with local pollination.
  4. Research if any special planting techniques are recommended for the particular variety of seed you’ve chosen; this can help ensure that your plants look beautiful and stay healthy too!
