Wildflower Maintenance Jobs For June
In June established wildflower areas will be self-sufficient. If you have recently sown seeds or laid Meadowmat Wildflower Turf, you will need to water regularly until the plants have rooted strongly into your soil. But if your meadow is already growing strongly, take some photos, pick yourself a bouquet of wildflowers or maybe press some flowers and just enjoy watching the wildlife.
