small wildflower meadow
hi hope you are all well.
we want to make a strip of our garden into a bee friendly / butterfly friendly area.
its the strip on the left below
since the picture was taken we have planted cherry, pear and apple trees in that strip (pear will be about 4m high at maturity, the cherry and apple about 3m, they are all currently about 1.8 m high, lowest branches about 45cm off the ground).
the strip is 15m long by 3 m wide.
the direction the camera is facing is south (we have a north facing garden as I'm sure you can work out...)
ive thought about ripping up the grass and planting wildflower meadow seeds, or maybe just planting them from the fence out to about a meter.
i don't want to harm the trees.
I'm also considering lavender and anything else that would help...please advise.
any suggestions would be great. i dont want to cross contaminate the main lawn to the right if i can help it.
