THURSDAY 12TH MARCH
"Say No to the Mow"
Last year I took part in Plantlife's "Say No to the Mow" Campaign where you leave an area of lawn unmown until 1st August and make a note of wildflower species that appear. These plants can then be entered onto Plantlife's website.
We left an area about 2 metres squared and I plan to do the same again this year. Already this part of the lawn has more wildflowers appearing than elsewhere.
I am not sure what species this - hopefully will have more idea when it flowers!
I believe this is Cut-leaved Dead-nettle (Lamium hybridum). Its very similar to Red Dead-nettle but the leaves are more deeply toothed and the flowers are smaller.
For more information on the campaign please see
