The Wildflower Meadow at Anglesey Abbey

Found to the west of the gardens, the Wildflower Meadows cover approximately 25 acres and contain over 50 species of wildflowers.

Throughout the summer, the meadows will become a hive of activity, with butterflies, small birds and numerous insects, including very important bees on the search for pollen and nectar. Between April and August, our record number of species recorded was 56. 

Caring for the meadows

Today, we practise a technique called mosaic mowing, leaving parts uncut. This benefits all forms of life, from the 22 grass species to the insects, small mammals, and birds that enjoy the grassland habitats
