Wildflower Meadow

Posted: 06/06/2016 at 11:46

I sowed a 3 foot by 3 foot area at home with a packet of seeds provided from mysmall  local GC nad the area  contains some rubble and chippings and the seeds are germinating after 10 days


I think they must have collected the seeds from their existing stock as it was not from a recognised seller

Dont laugh but you can get Ladybirds thru the post................no they dont fly in formation up the front path ...........that you can release on the bush to breed and eat all the aphids


They will then move on to other parts of the garden and continue to flourish
