A SPLASH of colour will be brought to patches of grassland in
Solihull Council will be creating wildflower meadows in Ludlow Walk (Chelmsley Wood)
(Smith’s Wood) and Beech Croft (Castle Bromwich).
They are just three of 15 sites across the borough which are being sown with seeds.
It is hoping the meadows, which won’t be mown until the end of summer, will bring butterflies and bees to local neighbourhoods.
This type of habitat was massively reduced during the 20th century, with around 95 per cent of sites destroyed in a 40 year period.
Those residents living close by the chosen locations will receive letters about the project and signs will be erected at each site to provide more information.

and Seven Star Road, near Solihull
