Wild Flowers 29th Sept 2018
The road verge at the Five Roads has been strimmed to encourage the growth of wild flowers next year. To encourage wild flowers you have to reduce the growth of the dominate grasses, nettles etc. you do this by cutting in September and removing all the material cut. This will have to be done for several years. Hopefully in a few years time we should see Early Purple Orchids growing there.
