SUMMER POLLINATORS & PLANTS WORKSHOP
Looking around the hedgerows, hardly any sign yet of the typical high summer browsing flowers – scabious, knapweed, bird’s foot trefoil, St John’s wort, meadowsweet.
So this week’s observation walk has to be postponed till after the August break – see Events section
There should still be plenty to see later in the season.
This is where the cultivated plants come into their own: with a range of varieties which can extend their foraging seasons, covering for gaps in availability of their native relatives. More on that later.
