It takes many years to get a traditional flower-filled grass meadow Jim but you can get wild flowers this year and even more next year. Don't despair. The GQT team were probably just saying that all those old meadows are the result of hundreds of years grazing, hay cutting etc all done at the right time of year to allow seeding and reduce rampant grass/weed growth.
You can have wild flowers. I have them but I won't have a 'proper' meadow in my lifetime (same as yours )
