Environment & Climate Action Section has purchased a number of wildflower boxes and trees for Tidy Towns/Schools in Tipperary. 

There will be different varieties of flowers in each box.  For maximum effect, please ensure that wildflowers are planted in 100 square metres of ground in soil that is suitable for wildflower planting ie, poor soil areas/unprotected areas.  These wild flowers will attract many different species of insects and bird life.   The best time for planting is April/May 2022.

Among the trees acquired are:

  • Mountain Ash, which will flower and have berries. Mountain Ash will not grow too tall or wide.
  • Alder Tree which is an excellent species in wet areas and have catkins throughout the year.
