Volunteering - Filham Park Wildflower Meadow


Earlier this year we started creating a new wildflower meadow on the existing amenity grass. We had mixed success partially due to weather and partially due to timing. Last Thursday, Lou and I were joined by a number of volunteers to help improve on the work from earlier in the year. We rotavated the existing areas and the area in-between to join the two existing meadows, making a larger single meadow. We then reseeded the whole area, the seed sown earlier in the year should still be in the soil and should come up in spring once we have had a winters frost. The seed mix we used last week is the same used at St Peter's Way back in April this year, so hopefully we will get a better display next year.
