Mini Wildflower Meadow

Me, Marcus, Kerrie and Ruby made it today.

We have got the meadow seed mix and it was nice to split the session into ripping out bramble roots and seeding the area.

The seeds are from a farm in Alcester, Warwickshire, so you cannot get much nearer than that. It is nice of them to supply a postcard that gives is an idea of what we will look like next summer.

The slog of pulling roots out is almost over.

There are a few bits left to grub out, but not a huge amount. We seeded the areas that we have cleared and hopefully it will make a huge difference next year.

The area where the newly planted trees are, presents us with a new challenge. There are an awful lot of plants growing and  it seems a shame to start ripping through this. I think Marcus and myself felt that it was better left, and just clear any scrub that encroaches.

I think we have just two more workdays before Christmas. It would be good to get this area done and dusted before the end of the year.

Thanks all who made it today.
