The Wildflower Meadow at Highgrove was introduced by HRH The Prince of Wales and Dame Miriam Rothschild over 35 years ago. Together they devised a seed mix of over 120 different species that were typical of the natural flora of Gloucestershire. The Meadow is now thriving and attracts a diverse spectrum of wildlife.
