Hi Jim, I think I shall but giving quite a large part of the meadow a good mowing well into the year next year. Those parts that have been mown for paths have lost a lost of the cowpasley and hogweed but I can see that lesser knapweed and geranium pratense and several other more desirables are still there. I have a right mess this year, not impressing me ot the insects except thousands of grasshoppers. Plenty of butterflies, dragonflies, bees, hoverflies etc around the rest of the garden though.
Several large skippers which we have rarely had here, they must be doing OK. No blues.
