30 Days Wild – End of No Mow May

During May we take part in No Mow May and at the beginning of May our garden looked like this

Now it looks like this

No Mow May is run by Plantlife and yesterday we took part in ‘Every Flower Counts’.

To do this you randomly select a 1 metre square grid and count the flowers within the grid, fill in a few questions on the Plantlife website and you get a Personal nectar score for the garden. Here’s mine.

The same as last year, we won’t be cutting the lawn until after the summer.
