Sowing for next year

The reason groups like North Berwick in Bloom  do so well in Beautiful  Scotland is they plan ahead and have regular  work sessions to keep all the various tasks  under control. On the Monday after success at the Aberdeen award ceremony the previous Wednesday we were out raking off cut grass from a large wildflower meadow on an old raised beach and doing  a trial sowing of yellow rattle to weaken  the more vigorous grasses. Our colleagues in East Lothian Council have reduced  mowing  of what was short turf  to one autumn  cut. As a result  and with no planting around 30 species of wild plants  have appeared.  ian-coos-green
