Keith Griffiths from Knutsford identified fifteen different species, each contributing to a vibrant tapestry of colours and life along the path.

The wildflowers spotted include:

  • Buttercup
  • Cow-parsley
  • Crane’s-bill
  • Cuckoo flower
  • Daisy
  • Dandelion
  • Foxglove
  • Herb bennet
  • Herb robert
  • Mouse-ear
  • Red campion
  • Red clover
  • Ribwort plantain
  • Speedwell
  • Yellow rattle

These flowers were not only abundant but also accompanied by a lively array of bees and moths, busy at work among the blossoms. This thriving ecosystem is a delightful sight and a hopeful sign of the positive impact of the ongoing conservation efforts.

This flourishing display of wildflowers not only enhances the beauty of the surroundings but also supports local wildlife. With continued care and attention, this Knutsford Heath will only become more magnificent over time.

The dedication to ecological stewardship is clearly paying off, ensuring that the natural splendour of Ladies Mile and Knutsford Heath continues to thrive and bring joy to all who walk its paths.
