Plantlife - Every Flower Counts
When it comes to providing vital nectar and pollen for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects, every flower counts. And your lawn can help provide that feast.
By taking part in this brand new citizen science action, we will show you how much nectar the flowers in your lawn are producing.
The more wild flowers you have in your lawn – and the more types of wild flowers – the more nectar will be produced. If you #SayNoMow and leave areas of your lawn unmown, you’re likely to have many more wild flowers and lots more nectar.
From your results, we will calculate a National Nectar Index to show how lawns across Britain are helping to feed our pollinators. We’ll also reveal the top ten lawn flowers in Britain and show you how to increase the number of flowers in your lawn.
We’re asking you to get out and look at your lawn on the Spring Bank Holiday Weekend – Saturday 25th May to Monday 27th May.
