Remember when we planned & planted up the meadow in March - we all agreed to site it here in order to attract loads of insects into the edible garden. Of course - the fact that it welcomes us into Leabank Square - right at the entrance - is a great benefit as well.
The ox-eye daisy is a typical meadow flower, growing in a variety of plant communities such as dry fields and meadows, but also under scrubs, open-canopy forests, and waste places. It thrives in a wide range of conditions and prefers heavy and damp soils.
Thanks to all who have sent messages complimenting the Gardening Club on how the meadow is looking - we really appreciate it!
