Wildflower hay meadow project

Our “front” garden is really just a utility space, used for the washing line and occasional overflow parking. It is currently rough weedy grass and the project is to turn it into a wildflower meadow.

A key feature of wildflower meadows is low soil fertility. The soil here didn’t start off too good, so I have cut the grass closely and removed the cuttings a few times, resulting in the brown patches in the picture. Raking reveals the soil.

I sowed the seed mixture a couple of weeks ago and, I think I can just see signs of germination.

We’ll see what happens.
