I love this idea I'm currently trying to turn one of my fields into a wildflower Meadow unfortunately I don't have very much money but I have sprinkled wildflower seeds and I'm now getting lots and lots of different flowers instead of mowing so we can walk around we've just cut little paths that go through and around it I've already got muntjac deer and deer coming into it I don't know how to increase the wildflowers and should I remove all the ragwort

Hello Jay, I wouldn’t remove all the ragwort unless you plan to keep horses on it. Ragwort is a fantastic plant for many pollinators including the beautiful black and red cinnabar moth. Good luck, sounds lovely. I am trying to enhance my own meadow and have a blog post about it you may find helpful here: https://www.thehabitatgarden.co.uk/thehabitatgardenerblog/read_193933/meadow-in-the-making.html
