This Saturday the Friends planted about 200 wildflower plugs in the meadow area of the Community Garden.
The Council's park rangers strimmed the area for us first. This will help the seeds from this year's wildflowers to take root, as well as making space for the new plants.
The plugs were grown by volunteers in the Council's polytunnels at White Lund. Other plugs have also been planted at Crook O'Lune and Miss Whalley's Field.
Wild flowers planted included: meadowsweet, ragged robin, knapweed, salad burnet, oxeye daisy, cowslip, birdsfoot trefoil, yarrow, red clover, and meadow cranesbill. All these are traditional meadow flowers and are very attractive to pollinators.
