Flower Fields Around Cheltenham

Published:

It’s that time of year again, the flowers are in bloom! In and around Gloucestershire you can find a wave of colour to brighten up your summer’s day. Common this time of year is lavender, poppies, delphiniums and sunflowers all grown in mass creating a sea of colour that looks spectacular.

These meadows present a bounty of wonderful photo opportunities, but far more importantly wildflowers are vital to the environment and conservation, providing pollinators with food, shelter and breeding space, and their seeds are an vital food source for birds and small mammals.

Enjoy, make memories and help little ones better understand our beautiful yet delicate countryside

There's a range of lavender to see from the newly planted to the more established plants and my children loved running through the rows upon rows of purple stipes!
