At the end of September it shipped off the last of 200,000 plugs of common reed Phragmites australis to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust to help restore wetlands in the Broads and Fens.
Wetlands project officer for the trust Nick Carter said: "We are working with the Environment Agency to develop reed beds and grazing marsh to provide habitat for marsh harriers, bitterns and other wetland birds, in compensation for the potential loss of coastal reed beds in East Anglia because of rising sea levels and climate change." British Wild Flower Plants nursery owner Linda Laxton added: "Knowing that the plants we grew, from seed collected on site, are helping to protect our local wild lands is incredibly rewarding".
British Wild Flower Plants also teamed up with Butterfly Conservation's "Munching Caterpillars" project, which operates throughout Dorset and Somerset and is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project aims to teach children and their families about butterflies, moths and caterpillars through fun, inspirational workshops. Over the past three years the project has delivered 350 workshops at schools and events across Dorset and Somerset.
British Wild Flower Plants said its plugs are perfect for both little hands and butterflies. It will be expanding its business in 2016 with more staff, larger facilities and a wider range of plants and seeds on offer.
