Today was a lovely warm sunny day a good opportunity to get on with getting the meadow ready for the winter The last of the hay collected and stacked .
When rotted down in the spring it will be used on the vegetable garden as a mulch.The grass had its final cut of the year and I sowed 3000 Yellow Rattle seeds .This has to be this seasons seed and needs the cold of the winter to break its dormancy.
I finally managed to locate the seed s on Ebay so I hope they are O.K.
I also planted 100 Anemone Blanda bulbs and 180 Fritillaria Meleagris
A small area that was full of Brambles has been treated with Round Up. This will be resown in the spring with Irish wild flowers seed collected this summer further increasing the bio diversity of the meadow.
