Hey everyone. Thought it would be fun if we could share ideas and inspiration for different daily gardening suggestions. I’ll get us started.
With the weather warming up, now is a great time to sow a patch of wild flowers for pollinators such as bees. This is a great project for both adults and kids! Rake over dug ground to leave a fine and crumbly texture, then scatter seeds evenly over the surface. Rake the seeds in and water if it’s dry. Seedlings should pop up in a matter of days. Wild flowers are great for all sorts of insects - pollinators to help pollinate our crops, but also for predators such as hoverflies which will also help to gobble up pests like aphids.
