In spring 2012 this area 65m x 22m will be sown with wildflower seed edged with wild grasses. The flowers are especially suited for bees.

Seed bed has been established without the use of chemicals by rotavating at regular intervals over the past year. Formally the land was overgrown with brambles. The Oaks pictured were saved during the process.
