No Mow May

| 0 comments

Good morning all

Some of us aren’t too bothered about having well-manicured grass and if you let the flowers bloom on your lawn, they can provide a vital source of nectar for bees and other pollinators. The National Trust is encouraging you not to mow your lawn for the month of May to support Plantlife‚Äôs No Mow May campaign in the run up to their Every Flower Counts survey at the end of the month. So you can cross mowing the lawn off your to-do list and watch to see if more bees, butterflies and bugs visit your garden.

I’m not sure I will leave the entire lawn unmown but it will be interesting to leave a patch and see what flowers will bloom.
