The Wildflower Meadow

 

Mead 110

The meadow is carefully managed, unimproved grassland with mown paths. From March onwards, drifts of daffodils give way to bluebells, pig nut, hard heads and other native wild flowers. There is a high proportion of wavy hair grass with its shining, dark brown seed heads that shimmer in the wind. At the end of July the whole meadow is mown and cleared to reduce fertility and discourage the coarser grasses.
