sowing wild flowers (May 2018)

A few parents with young children were interested in sowing wild flowers in the wild flower area that Friends of Mayow Park look after, beside the Triangle fruit bed. So we arranged to meet up to give the  youngsters the opportunity of sowing some seed balls  (a small ball-shaped mix of clay, compost and seeds) followed by loose seeds. 
The seed balls had been purchased through a crowdfunding campaign by London National Park City, aiming to bring appropriate colourful wild flowers into public spaces.
Now comes the waiting game, when we hope there will be enough moisture to allow the seeds to germinate and  wow us with a floral display during the summer
Young volunteers get ready to sow

Ready, steady, sow
