Gardening for a Wildflower Patch
One of our members suggested that we produce a leaflet for any gardeners wanting to encourage wildflowers in part of their lawn or in any grassy area. The leaflet was introduced at our meeting on June 8th at Flaxley and has been very well received so far. The leaflet explains the basic requirements of not mowing until seed has set and of removing cuttings to reduce soil fertility.
You may wish to formalise your arrangement with anyone using your land for grazing. The download document contains possible dates for the start and end of grazing and ideas for how you might want your land managed.
