Meadow flowers at Hever Castle

The flower meadows have been created by Rob Peers the Head Greenkeeper at Hever Castle Golf Club. Rob says: “Hever Castle’s CEO, Duncan Leslie, afforded me the opportunity to create a long-standing ambition of his – to create flower meadows on the Golf Course and the lower walks on the lake within the grounds of Hever Castle.”

Each of the selected areas had different considerations and their own micro climate, environment and purpose. For Rob Peers, it was really important to select sites that would improve bio-diversity and to provide functionality and purpose to the areas which had previously been dominated by aggressive species such as bramble and nettle.

Rob and his team used seed mixes supplied by Rigby Taylor and worked with Euroflor to create the flower meadows.
