I want a flower meadow

Posted: 09/09/2015 at 01:33

I live very close to Pictorial Meadows and they supplied their seeds to Rotherham Council who sowed them along roadsides & roundabouts etc and they really did look spectacular. I even wrote to Rotherham council to commend them.

It's impossible to miss me nutcutlet. I'll be the massive bloke arriving in a massive motorbike. I just hope there's somewhere to change out of my biking gear, walking around in armoured vortex, boots and helmet isn't fun

Those photos were taken a couple of years ago, I forgot to sow my sunflowers this year. All of those plants are in pots, apart from the lavender in the foreground of the second photo.

That could work, or just compress them as much as you can. Personally id cover mine, but I guess other don't?

Shame you couldn't get to Chatsworth Show, the weather was perfect for it. We went but didn't get there until 1pm. We stayed right to the end were the traffic queues leaving the event were horrendous.

I live only minutes from Renishaw Hall, but have only been once many years ago. I really ought to visit again.

Ive always done it in bags, but I'm in the process of building a new 3 bay compost with an added section for leaves, like yours mine will be chicken mesh sides.

You could always run the lawn mower over them first, that way you can get more leaves into your leaf store, and they will rot down faster. Keep them damp.
