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

Early march in the meadow

 I spent the afternoon planting out wild flowers that I had grown in the greenhouse over the winter.These included Primula Vulgaris ,Primula Candelabra Rainbows. White Campions 
Euphorbia and the variegated form of Hesperis Matronalis.
After collecting the seed for this Agrimony when I was on holiday in Ireland in the autumn I then dropped most of them this solo seedling is being carefully cosseted in the hope of planting it out later in the year.
This is theHesperis Matonalis  I planted I have had it growing in a pot in the greenhouse for almost 2 years not knowing what it was until it was identified for me this week by a member of the Plant Porn Group on Face Book.
The Daffodils are opening all the way down the field its their second year of flowering and they are a real joy to see.
I have ordered 100 more snowdrops to complete the border on the other side of the meadow.  I have also ordered 100 bluebells these I am thinking will complement the new shrubs that will be planted in a couple of weeks time,
