AHS Birds & Bees Meadow TurfMat is a mix of 41 native British wildflowers that will encourage a wide variety of wildlife into your garden. Besides being a joy to share your space with, AHS Birds & Bees Meadow TurfMat has many features to actively support biodiversity.
It has a long flowering period, supplying pollen and nectar for bees, butterflies, hoverflies and moths all through the spring and summer months and well into autumn, too. As a source of food for caterpillars, it plays a vital part in butterfly and moth lifecycles, producing autumn seed heads and a ready supply of insects and larvae for birds. For the human visitors to the garden, there are colourful flowers and the fascination of watching wild creatures going about their everyday lives.
AHS Birds & Bees Meadow TurfMat will change appearance from year-to-year because the balance of plant species is affected by weather, soil type and management. AHS Birds & Bees Meadow TurfMat contains mostly perennial plant species but annual and bi-annuals are included, too. These may not appear every year.
Each roll of AHS Birds & Bees Meadow TurfMat covers 1 square metre of prepared soil and can be quite heavy. We recommend having two people to install it.
