Davius Nursery informally began in 2002 as is a spin out of the Davius Sustainability Consultancy (est 2001); with a view to support biodiversity in the locale. This came in several emerging strands from working within the community and observing damage done from industry and commerce, yet a willingness amongst communities to wish to see environmental improvements.
Transparency and disclaimer:
We do not do deliveries (many of the wildflowers are too delicate for carriage – plus 100’s of unnecessary ‘plant miles’ being done for single plants is not sustainable sense) thus the majority of the orders made online – you must pick them up from the Cardiff area. Generally Saturday’s are the best time to pick up your purchases.
Many of our customers wish to improve the appearance of their private gardens, public green space or expand the biodiversity of their smallholding, community garden or farm sites. The Davius Nursery can supply some of the wildflowers that you may wish to utilise as part of your wildlife practice.
As opposed to be profit driven, maximising sales – Davius Nursery strives to empower the buyer with information. Many of the wildflowers you purchase here, you only require a few of your chosen wildflowers such as Foxgloves or Betony plants which will produce more seedlings which will land near the original wildflower you have put in the ground. Just a few these specific wildflowers from Davius Nursery and you will easily have your own increasing wildflower population in the coming years.
One example of encouraged single purchase is the Teasels wildflower; as they proliferate massively and will take over your garden or green space and must always be kept in check! The Teasel plants can be a very high maintenance wildflower so please know what you are doing before you purchase one of them.
Many of the wildflowers grown at the Davius Nursery will be used for people driven biodiversity improvements community efforts. We welcome the donations and small grants which are utilised to purchase the resources (focusing on re-use of many resources such as discarded plant pots, tools that can be salvaged etc.) to continue to expand the community empowerment and biodiversity support initiatives.
Almost all of the sales funds are reinjected into expanding the successive years wildflower resource and community engagement efforts.
