Wildlife Friendly Garden
The aim for this garden is to restore habitat, and increase biodiversity. It also has to look good and provide space for entertaining and playing. The budget was not large, so the beds of perennials were established from bare roots, a more affordable way of planting than buying potted plants. The trees were planted as saplings, and show signs of adapting to the strong South Westerly wind. The photos show it in its 6th year. Yellow rattle seed has been sown in the meadow, and now Meadow Buttercup, Red Clover, Pignut, Cow Parsley, Self Heal, Sorrel and Yarrow are making a come back.
