Dear Plotters

The Its Your Neighbourhood theme for 2017 is “Birds, Bees and Trees”, and your committee has been pondering whether the site of the wildflower meadow can be reformed to reflect this theme.

Wild Flower Garden in Year 2

The meadow has been in place for 3 years, and the site was initially too rich to prevent grasses and weeds from overcoming the wild flowers. We have time this spring to rework this area (starting with digging out the current grasses and weeds), and would appreciate your ideas on what should replace it:

1 Wildflower meadow resown
2 Herbaceous border with bee-friendly flowers
3 Shrubs and perennial plants (bee friendly)
4 Set back to grass
5 Other (please specify!)

PLEASE RESPOND TO ME BY INDICATING THE NUMBER WHICH INDICATES YOUR PREFERENCE.

Replies appreciated if possible by end 31st March, so that we can prepare for action in the April Community Sunday.

Looking forward to your responses,

Best Regards

Michael Hart
Secretary – GFAA

    Would it be too much to have 1 and 2 – re-sowing the wildflowers and have a border with perennials like chives, lavender, catnip etc.
