British Wild Flower Plants' 'Golf Guide to Wild Flowers' is now available to download.
MD and owner Linda Laxton has drawn on her 25 years experience of growing nothing but native species, to guide Turf Managers interested in preserving wildlife towards biodiversity.
From simply planting wild flowers in the rough to creating a natural grey water filtering system the guide pinpoints areas that can become important wildlife habitats just by changing the planting.
"It can be as simple or as complicated as you like," Linda explains. "What I wanted to do was encourage Turf Professionals to look at their particular outdoor sporting facility and give them ideas on how to make it more attractive to wildlife. Once the food source is there the wildlife will come."
Filled with such gems as 'don't forget that Holly and Ivy planted together will provide vital food for the Holly Blue Butterfly' and 'the larvae of the Campion Moth that lives in the Red Campion's seed heads is a valuable food source for Blue Tits' the Golf Guide to Wild Flowers, although written primarily for Greenkeepers is also relevant to anybody in charge of a green open space.
