Wildflower garden for the summer

Last year we planted an annual wildflower meadow along the side of Rye Bay Cottage and it was a huge success with all the bees and other insects.

So we have been watching the new BBC series Sarah Raven’s Bees, Butterflies and Blooms on BBC2 with great enjoyment. Catch it here on i-Player http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01cktgq/Bees_Butterflies_and_Blooms_Cities/

So this year we will be re-planting the wildflower meadow and adding perenial flowers and will be adding an extra area on the slows leading up to the beehives.

So watch this space!
