• Devon Doctors donation helps to create wildflower meadows

    Devon Doctors has helped to create a dash of colour across some of Exeter’s best-know green spaces.

    Along with the Big Lottery Fund, we gave financial support to the Exeter Wild City initiative – a scheme led by Devon Wildlife Trust [DWT] and Exeter City Council.

    This saw more than three hectares of new wildflower meadow planted in 2013 and this summer their beautiful blooms have been showing off their true colours.

    DWT said the aim was to create colourful summer flower displays and, at the same time, help some of our most important urban wildlife including minibeasts such as bumblebees, hoverflies and butterflies.

    Planting involved a wildflower seed mix of colourful plants such as cornflowers, poppies, corn chamomiles and corn cockles.

    "Cities such as Exeter are essential places for wildlife such as bumblebees, butterflies and birds," explained Emily Stallworthy of DWT.

    "People’s gardens and city parks provide a huge variety of flowering plants that help to feed pollinating insects. These insects then go on to do a very important job in feeding us by pollinating our orchards and crops.

    "Our aim was to provide a variety of flowers throughout the year; in this way we can feed insects with nectar over long periods of time."
