1 Metre Matters

It's amazing what you can grow in a 1 metre space!

‘1 Metre Matters’ was created to showcase that even the smallest effort collectively makes a BIG difference. All it takes is just a 1m space in your garden to create a wildlife habitat, increasing the number and range of pollinators, and help our environment.

Your 1 metre matters! Here are a few examples for how you can get involved:


This is possibly the easiest way to get involved in the project! Wildflowers attract pollinators, support biodiversity and are extremely low maintenance. Dedicate a small patch of your garden to wildflowers. Prepare a small area of moist soil ensuring it’s weed-free and aim to sow wildflower seeds thinly. You can simply throw them over a small patch in the garden and just leave them to grow without having to maintain them, letting them grow free as they would in the wild.

Grow Your Own

You don’t need a massive area to dedicate to growing your own produce! Even just having a 1m veg plot helps to reduce your carbon footprint, stops plastic packaging waste and can improve your mental health too! Growing your own will likely encourage you to eat more fruits and vegetables and is a great sense of accomplishment once you eat the results of your work.

Wildlife Garden

Create a lush haven to encourage wildlife, including pollinators. Add a mix of shady plants and open head single flowers. It also provides a home for garden insects, many of which will help to keep down the number of damaging pests. Why not try making your own bug hotel? In our display, we’ve also included broken terracotta pots which work well as homes for various wildlife such as hedgehogs or toads.

Cottage Garden

Try planting a patch of beautiful perennial plants! When buying and planting over the span of a few months, it means that flowers will be out in bloom for a longer period of time. Perennial plants offer many benefits due to their deep root systems which fix carbon, reduce water needs and help restore soil health.
