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

Collecting and sorting seeds

It is now time to start preparing the meadow for next year. the dead flowers have to be cut down completely and the hay stacked for composting , any bare patches resown with more interesting flowers. Here my ten year old grand daughter is separating the seeds from the dried flowers we collected a few weeks ago. She is so keen and wants to know what they all are and how are we going to sow them.
I have already planted out new plug plants that I had raised in the green house .My bulb order of Fritillary meleagris the snakes head Fritillary arrived last week .These will want planting as soon as possible . they will be planted in one of the island beds in the middle of the meadow .
