Coronation Meadows is an exciting project launched by HRH Prince Charles, who called for the creation of at least one new wild flower meadow in every county, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Coronation.


The initiative is led by a partnership between Plantlife, The Wildlife Trusts and the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

This remarkable nationwide project has received funding support from Biffa Award to restore or create a will see a meadow in every county across the UK to mark the anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation.

More meadows will be created using wild flower seed or green hay collected from these Coronation Meadows.

The project Technical Group have put together a number of documents to help facilitate meadow restoration; these are available as downloads below
