Birds foot trefoil

Posted: 22/05/2015 at 23:16

I have a spot where it could drop it's seeds quite easily but it's doing well in the border I don't want to move it and risk it not flowering. Will collect some seeds and have a go at growing it.

Would like to introduce some clover into the lawn (?) as well

 

 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I planted one of these in a border but I'm thinking that they would look around the edges of the lawn.

I don't have a strimmer so there's always slightly longer bits of grass. Are they good self seeders? Or is best to collect the seeds then grow into small plants.

I've got in mind some straggly corners with some pretty wild flowers dotted about.

I've done a bit of research but all I could find was how to get rid of it in lawns

Just thought I'd pop in to say that it's been nice to see some gardening/plants on the TV in the evening. Not really that into the design/sculptor side of things, but enjoyed seeing the plants

I remember this happening last year as well On the farm we had loads of bats in the loft which was North ish facing. I was surprised how noisy they were in the loft

Sweet little flower with a lovely colour, the leaves are wrong for pulmonaria. Don't know what it is though
