The turf supplier planted the same kind of grasses and flowers it supplied to the Olympics at Kingsmead Meadow, where King Harold set up camp on the eve of the Battle of Hastings on 14 October 1066.
Wildflower Turf specialises in soil-less growing systems for wildflowers and grasses, featured in the Olympics opening ceremony and across several sites including the equestrian centre and the athletes’ village.
Said managing director James Hewetson-Brown; "The blend has 30 different flower seeds and four grasses. We grew more than needed for the Olympics, so this extends the turf's benefits to the wider community and provide a lasting legacy."
The Meadows Nectar Networks Initiative raises the awareness of the value of meadows by demonstrating to the public and landowners what can be achieved to reverse their decline.
The second site to benefit from the wildflower turf will be near the restored 17th-century Poplar Cottage at the Weald and Downland Museum in Chichester.
