Restoring the Wild

Donald MacIntyre

Drawing on the latest botanical science and opinion, and real-world practical knowledge, this richly illustrated practical guide is essential reading for anyone interested in creating and restoring species-rich meadows and wild vegetation, whether it is a garden, woodland, field, urban space or simply to gain a greater understanding of the history and renovation of Britain and Ireland's rich and diverse meadows – an intrinsic part of our natural and cultural heritage. In this book, the UK’s leading wild meadow seed producer, Donald MacIntyre, provides expert advice on all areas of the creation, restoration and management of meadowland, including a directory with detailed accounts of the 220-plus species for habitat restoration and creation in the British Isles.

Foreword by Sara Oldfield OBE ‘Donald’s generosity in sharing his knowledge through this inspiring and practical publication will enable wider production of good quality seed to support and enhance biodiversity whether in wild areas, meadows, farmland, urban parks and gardens, and along transport routes.’ Sara Oldfield OBE
