Every Flower Counts

31 May 2023

Every Flower Counts is a Plantlife citizen science activity that provides a snap-shot health check of our lawns, that takes place at the end of No Mow May.

Plantlife wants to know which flowers are most abundant on lawns. From there, they can work out how much nectar they are producing and how nectar scores have changed from previous years.

It’s very easy to take part. Every Flower Counts takes just a few minutes to do. No botanical knowledge is needed – everyone signing up will receive some simple wildflower identification help for 26 common lawn flowers.

Once you’ve submitted your results online, you’ll instantly receive your own Personal Nectar Score. This shows you how many bees your lawn can support.
