Welcome to the blog of my Wild Flower Meadow for 2015.
A bit late starting this year due to nasty persistent virus that was so difficult to eradicate.
Sadly this may be the last year I may be keeping a blog for my meadow . The house and acre of land will be going on the market in the not too distant future . The new owners may put the land back to grazing or development who knows .
I sincerely hope not.
I hope it will be as loved and nurtured as It has been since I started it in 2006
In the mean time I will endeavour to keep the blog up to date with lots of pictures showing how the plants and wildlife play out in 2015 .I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I do producing it.
Please pop back from time to time to see the new additions and feel free to add any comments

From failure to success

At the end of June I had to weed killer a small piece of the meadow  as it had become infested with thousands of rape seedlings . I re sowed it with lots of odd and old packets of seeds,with added Buckwheat .The Buckwheat was a great success, absolutely loved by the insects I'll make sure I sow plenty of it next year.The rest of the bed has erupted into a riot of colour .I am so pleased it has performed  far better than I had dare dream, knowing that it would be so late to flower I didn't expect much.

Resown after 21st June
