Wild Flower Meadows

The Council are once again planting wildflower meadows at Hiltingbury and Fryern, despite following RHS guidelines on establishing these meadows, last year we learned just how many weed seeds there are in the Recreation Grounds. So in 2020 and going forwards for the next few years we are taking a much more aggressive approach in the overseeding. We are treating the meadow areas as-if they had not been established before. Currently they have been rotovated and we are waiting for the weeds to come through so they can be sprayed before we seed. So, with a bit of typical British weather we'll hopefully have the fabulous display we had 2 years ago.
