Growing blossom hedges for farming and nature at Rhosili on the Gower

Sadly, a dramatic stretch of coastline at the Gower has been affected by biodiversity and habitat loss. But thanks to the support of National Trust members, we are working to bring native blossom back to the Gower, the UK's first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Watch this video to discover how this will create more homes for wildlife and attract a wide range of species.
