I am joined by Sandro Cafolla from Design By Nature. Sandro is the leading expert on Irish wildflower having being grow them successfully for over 30 years. His business Design By Nature supply gardeners, public authorities, parks departments, hotels and golf courses with native Irish wildflower meadows. They supply both individual varieties and blended mixes to grow wildflower meadows. These meadows are havens for all insects, pollinator and birds.
