James Hewetson-Brown

Managing Director

James Hewetson-Brown founded Wildflower Turf in 2003. With 20 years expertise in high quality lawn turf production, he wanted to find a solution to the problems faced by the landscape industry when growing wild flowers from seed. He went on to create the UK’s first, soil-less growing system for wildflowers to meet the demand for superior quality, ready-made wildflower meadows without the establishment problems associated with traditional seeding methods.

Blog: Wildflower Expertise Supports Magnificent Milton Park

Welcome to the second instalment of our two-part blog focusing on our wildflower consultancy services, where we chat to Peter King, Associate Director of Facilities (CBRE) at Milton Park.


A recent wildflower consultancy project for us, Milton Park is a 250-acre science, business and technology park in Oxfordshire.

Our consultancy team recently conducted a site visit to assess and evaluate the Park’s wildflower areas. We provided a number of recommendations to improve the Park’s wildflower management strategy to ensure long-term success.
