Mini Meadows: Grow a Little Patch of Colourful Flowers

The word "meadow" conjures images of wide expanses of land, but a mini meadow - a kind of informal flower garden started with seed sown directly into the soil - can be any size; plus, it's fun, easy to grow, and good for the planet. With as little as 50 square feet and for less than GBP15, gardeners can plant a colourful meadow that demands little in the way of space, mowing, or maintenance, uses less water than a traditional lawn, and provides habitat for pollinators - not to mention a natural exploration space for children.

From choosing the right variety of seeds, preparing the soil, sowing evenly, and watering well, author Mike Lizotte guides readers through the process of successfully creating a miniature meadow that suits their climate, soil, and growing goals, whether planting to beautify a hellstrip, halt erosion, fill a boggy spot, or establish a nesting area for bees and butterflies. Mini Meadows offers gardeners of all levels the keys to creating, caring for, and reaping the rewards of thriving meadows through the seasons, year after year.
