Wild flower in the orchard
We've sown 30 square metres of wild flower seed in the orchard last month. The wild flower seed is a native woodland mix from Emorsgate Seeds EW1F mix - "Wild flower for woodland". We've sown in the areas of tree clearance on the embankment. The idea is to bring some natural plant variety back into the wilder areas of the orchard.
