Posted (IP: Staff) ·

A 100-acre site of former farmland has been re-planted with wild flowers that have attracted thousands of insects.

Having been a farmer for 65 years, Alan Ellis decided to diversify in retirement, and now the acres he owns near Ivybridge, Devon, are full of cornflowers, poppies and daisies.

Mr Ellis said he didn't expect the venture to be "so exciting".

Flower expert Amelia Cooper-Smith said the fields were "massive nectar hotels" for all sorts of different pollinators.
