Seed collecting and planting

A range of different wild flower seeds were collected from the old ridge-and-furrow grassland on the school field, before it was mown, and were planted in pots and in a small garden patch. It will be quite a wait to find out whether they grow though, as some of them need winter chilling before they will germinate. The plan is to grow them on and then plant them at the Community Orchard site, to increase the biodiversity there.
