Wild flowers set to bloom again in Exeter
Published: 12 February 2019
Wild flowers are set to bloom across Exeter again this summer as the City Council confirmed its commitment to the Wild City project, working alongside Devon Wildlife Trust to keep our roadside verges and roundabouts looking pretty and helping save our threatened insect population.
Wild flower seeds will be sown across Exeter in March with colourful blooms expected around July.
In previous years, the blooms have been popular amongst residents and visitors alike and help provide valuable habitat for insects and other wildlife.
A report in the Biological Conservation Journal this week suggested insects numbers had declined and that 40% of the world’s insect species could become extinct over the next few decades.
