One thought on “Help for Habitats: Grass with Wildflowers”
The idea of leaving Council verges uncut was tried and failed some years ago. The problem is that it spreads weeds, weakens the grass element of verges, attracts dumping and litter and generally looks a mess. Also, harder to cut foliage later. Diversity in gardens and parks is a better approach and better still mass bulb planting Crocus, small Daffodils, Tulips in Spring. Also, better Council selection of small trees-they often damage pavements with larger specimens they choose.
