Lawn to Wild Flowers

Posted: 22/04/2016 at 16:32

I want to change a part of my lawn to a PERMANENT area for wild flowers

Not this current fad for chucking some seeds about for the birds to eat

? Which flowers do I use and how do I give them the best chance of becoming PERMANENT

Advice please friends
