As there are many habitats associated with gardens, please also look at the habitat specific pages, especially those in the Grassland, Freshwater and Reedbed sections (e.g. to find out about creating a wild flower meadow or a pond). There are also important guidelines under Project Planning and Planting and Stock (e.g. see Obtaining and Specifying when buying wild flowers). Be aware there are many companies supplying 'wild' flowers which are not British species and/or may be inappropriate for what you may wish to achieve.
