Thanks, OL.....problem is, they need really impoverished soil to succeed, so, as a project  needs to be planned with care. 

Lily, I think this is a better shot of the cornflowers.

Thanks, Lily.....I do think it's a really positive move by the village council. It's just a wide grass verge that has been turned over to wild flowers.

Were they like so?

Butterflies do spend time on gravel and places such as your lawn topping-up with minerals.

Improving soil

Posted: 19/07/2014 at 10:51

This is long term I know, but in the old days when things didn't have to move at such a rapid pace, we used to grow a crop of spuds on new-build land, before giving it over to other uses.

The process (digging, mucking & hoeing) cleans and improves the soil tremendously.
