During 2012 the Urban Pollinators Project helped the city councils of Bristol, Reading, Leeds, and Edinburgh to establish urban meadows in their parks. The seed mixes for these meadows contain either annual plants (i.e. those that survive for a single growing season), or perennial plants (i.e. those that live for several years, regenerating from root-stock). This slideshow documents the rise and fall of annual plants at the Inch Park urban meadow in Edinburgh.
