Archie’s Meadow: Update

Archie's Meadow in mid November
Success ! You might not think this is the most exciting photo in the world, but it’s great news for Archie’s meadow. A month ago we sowed about 2/3s of it with our Special General Purpose mix and a Cornfield annual nurse, which is doing great guns. The annuals have germinated (and should look fantastic next year) and kick-started the meadow. You can also see grasses, which is all there is to see in the mix in the other 1/3 of the site, which we sowed at the same time with a local mix of grasses, perennials, and Yellow Rattle. I’ve been stunned at how easy it has been – so far – and I can’t wait to see it in 6 months time…
