Wild patches!

OK, so I like nature and appreciate we all need to do our bit but can anyone tell me why I have to have a "wild patch" (weed patch!!) in my back garden while all the neighbours enjoy weed free lawns. Can the "wild patch" not be shared with others for a year or two as I think I have had my share.

Weeds r us,

Sue

I've chosen to leave the bank from my lawn to the street, 'wild' and have seen a variety of insects and butterflies throughout the summer.

However, I've never heard it ever being mandatory.

There are a couple of gardens nearby, that are pretty unkept and have a Pro Natura plaque on a post, in their garden.

Farmers also get a subsidy if they give over a small field to nature, during the growing season

Re: Wild patches!

I always leave some in my garden, because faeries and nature spirits love wild patches.

they can play there....

Perhaps you will see some...


(no, I'm not kidding)
