National Meadows Day 2019

07 July 2019 by Roy Preece

This year, Saturday 6th July, is the National Meadows Day, to remind us of the importance and pleasure of fields full of wild flowers.

Recently we were urged also to let wild flowers flourish on our lawns to provide nourishment for insects and especially bees. So many people think they should use weed- killers and fertilizers to produce a perfect pure grass lawn, but more pleasure and interest can be found by letting some wild flowers grow.  Here I have allowed a large patch of white clover to flower. 

It’s very attractive and the bees love it.
