Forum home Wildlife gardening


I'm trying to make a wildlife patch at the back of our garden. I have left a patch of nettles and let the grass grow but don't know what to do with the cow parsley and docs now that they have set seed. Should i just leave them ?

    If you want it totally wild then just leave it, if you want it like a wild flower meadow or a bit tamed then cut it once or twice in summer, leaving it on the long side.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
