Wild flowers for spring

A few weeks ago Paul Chilton sowed the orchard with wildflower meadow seed. We used Emorsgate Seeds EM3 for those in the know. We hope to see up to 23 flowers including:
  • Yarrow Meadowsweet
  • Lady’s Bedstraw
  • Oxeye Daisy
  • Birdsfoot Trefoil
  • Cowslip
  • Meadow Buttercup
  • Red Campion
  • Tufted Vetch
  • Wild Red Clover
and some grasses such as:
  • Smaller Cat's Tail
  • Crested Dogstail and
  • Slender-creeping Red Fescue
