It’s looking pretty and white clover is spreading nicely. At the end of August we will remove another cut of grass from here, to weaken the grasses further and hopefully allow some new plants to grow.
We also intend to sow some yellow rattle, which is a useful ally in establishing a flower meadow. As its roots develop underground they seek out the roots of plants growing nearby, especially grasses. Once contact is made the yellow rattle draws water and nutrients from them, suppressing the growth of grasses by as much as 60%. In the resulting space, other flowers have room to grow.
There is 10% off the listed prices of our beef until the end of August.
