Species rich barn sweepings

A wonderful donation of three sacks of species rich ‘barn sweepings’ from hay from local species rich meadows donated by Cath and Bill Grayson, local conservation graziers. The barn sweepings will contain lots of fine meadow grasses, meadow buttercups, red clover eyebright and the fine seeds of orchids which appear as dust and have fallen from the hay onto the barn floor. We are going to add these to some of the bare areas of the meadow, especially where the moles have been active and where we are removing docks. Some will also be donated to local meadow makers to help them get their meadows established. Thank you Bill and Cath your donation is much appreciated and will be well used.
