City meadows near Collinson Rd
Land near Collinson Rd, seeded with wild flowers. Much of the social housing in this part of Sheffield has been demolished and has been given over to meadows. Developed by Professor Nigel Dunnett of the University of Sheffield these City Centre meadows, designed to attract pollinating insects are now a decade old. It is planned to use similar planting techniques in the 2012 Olympic Park in London. A mixture of native and foreign species are chosen to provide colour and a source of pollen throughout the season.
