This has had a disappointing outcome, with little apparent germination. Recently we planted all the meadow seed we had left over in the hope that something will come up during the spell of wet weather. Ian Bailey, the City Council’s Engagement Officer, Education, Environment and Ecology has brought me a collection of seedlings which he grew from seeds of wild flowers harvested near the Hawthorns Urban Wildlife Centre. When they are large enough, they will be planted out. I was pleased to see that the Council left the “Eye” un-mown when they last cut the grass.
