Foxgloves in Hedgerows

Foxgloves in Hedgerows

 

The unmistakable flowering spikes of Foxgloves are known for both a reminder of the lazy days of summer and of course their infamous poisonous nature. These high pink flowers can be seen between June and September. Foxgloves can be found all over, in woodlands, gardens, moorland, coastal cliffs and many of North Devon's country lanes.

Foxgloves have large, flat leaves that form the base of the plant, and tall, upright flower spikes. The tube-shaped, pink flowers arranged around the stem are unmistakable. Foxgloves are an excellent source of nectar and pollen for all kinds of insects including bumblebees, moths and Honey Bees.

To encourage wildlife around the campsite we have planted several native flower species in our wildflower meadow and nature trail to provide essential nectar for bees and butterflies.

Just returned from a weekend at Warcombe farm, a fantastic location and very well presented, the facilities were first class. I took the liberty of driving onto some of the other nearby campsites, just for a look, they were not a patch on Warcombe farm. We took our dog who loved it. plenty of space for walks and a 10 minute drive to the beach. Great weekend We will definitely be going again
