Wildflower area

Perennial wildflower meadow seed mixed with cornfield annuals sown September 2015 germinated well and started flowering in May 2016. Below are some photos that were all taken on the wildflower area of the recreation ground. Thanks to Froyle Parish Council for purchasing the seed. Preparing the ground took 14 individuals over 100h worth of volunteer time. The perennial meadow area has an annual cut each year at the end of July. In Spring 2018 a new area of cornfield annuals was prepared and sown by volunteers.

In addition to the wildflowers present in the seed mix, other plant species grew without any assistance. Do send us photos of what you see on the wildflower area by email to info@froylewildlife.co.uk.
