Stoney Allotments Purton Environmental Plan for 2019 to 2020

Purpose: to encourage pollinators & increase crops, esp. apples, strawbs & other early season insect pollinated fruit and veg.

Ensuring pollinators are by the allotments in Spring when apples and early insect pollinated crops need them.

wild flower seeding

Seed to be purchased by allotment see link below and used in late August/ early September. Sown in clumps and 'corridors' Ensuring pollinators are attracted to the allotments and can move freely from flower to flower pollinating our crops.

fruit tree planting

Seeding wildflower mix next to fruit trees. Ensuring pollinators do the business!
