Wild flowers getting ready to bloom at Clifton Campus

NTU's Landscape Management team are due to complete the second phase of their wild flower planting to improve biodiversity on Clifton Campus.

NTU's Landscape Management Team is due to complete the second phase of their wild flower planting to improve biodiversity at Clifton Campus.

The first phase, completed in 2015, included sections of wild flowers in front of New Hall and around South Gate car park, overlooking the A453.  The second phase will see further stretches of wild flowers near the Main Gate and the South Gate, near the rugby pitch, bringing the total planted area to approximately 6000sq. metres.

The wildflower mixes used have been tailored to different areas of the campus, allowing a variety of habitats and colour schemes to enhance both biodiversity and aesthetic value to the landscape. Along with more formal planting schemes across the University, the wild flowers offer positive impressions for staff, students and visitors to the Clifton Campus and reinforces the University's commitment to the management and improvement of our natural environment.

The planting also supports the work the Environment and Landscape Management teams have undertaken to achieve the prestigious Green Flag Award for outstanding public spaces. Find out more about biodiversity at NTU.
