An interesting campaign which could bag you a packet of free wild flower seeds!

To mark National Science and Engineering week’s ‘What on Earth’ campaign which is raising awareness of UK plants and animals facing habitat destruction and homelessness, free wildflower seeds are on offer on
It couldn’t be simpler or more fun. All you need to do is upload a snap of something you don’t recognise that you spot in your garden, to , and you will receive native varieties of wildflower which will encourage greater biodiversity in your back garden or flower box.

The aim of ‘what on earth’ is to spot, collect and identify as many species as possible over the course of the week, painting a fascinating picture of UK wildlife for us all to observe and enjoy. Organised in partnership with The Open University’s iSpot website, NSEW’s specialists from all fields of natural science will examine, identify and catalogue as many finds as they can over the course of the week and beyond.

That’s not all, a green roof will be awarded to a school in the area which has shown most support for National Science & Engineering Week’s ‘What on Earth’ campaign and uploaded the most pictures. So whether you are an avid nature watcher or you just happen to find something unusual crawling around in your garden take a picture and submit it

So encourage your friends to take part in this scheme too! Just get out there and take a photo of the interesting stuff going on in your garden. Whether it’s a picture of the birds, the fox, the green shoots starting to sprout up through the cold soil, or buds on a tree…
