Wildflower Strip

Wildflower Strip

At the beginning of the year the team began a project to clear large shrubs from an area on the north side to the sports field culminating in the sowing of wildflower seed in May, see blog entry for the 5th May 2016 'Creating A Wildflower Strip'.

The seed mix 'Colour Splash 3 New Wave' germinated well and has resulted in a very colourful display of wildflowers, a great result for its first year and only three months since sowing! The flowers creating this lovely splash of colour are:
  • Cornflower - Centaurea Cyanus
  • Sensation Cosmos Bipinnatus - Cosmos Bipinnatus
  • Cosmos Sulphureus - Cosmos Sulphureus
  • Garden Chrysanthemum - Chrysanthemum
  • Coreopsis Tinctoria - Coreopsis Tinctoria
  • Tithonia - Tithonia speciosa
  • California Zinnia - Zinnia elegans
