The garden & FOE seeds
It is rumoured that summer is going to make another appearance. How lovely that would be. With that in mind, I ventured to the bottom of the garden to see if there was any growing left in my pots.
Those of you who have followed my garden posts will know that raised beds were replaced by pots and rather than my normal bedding plants, I went mad with wild flower seeds. They would provide bees and butterflies with a delicious menu that would bring them to my garden in abundance.
Certainly when you wander around between the pots there is a beautiful scent that you can’t buy in a bottle!
One packet of seeds came from Friends of the Earth. They have a big campaign set up to save the bees. You send a text to get a free packet sent to you. Of course, they do have to contact you for your address and they use that time to try to get you signed up to make a contribution or be a supporter with a regular payment. I wonder how many people did sign up?
I didn’t because we already contribute to a number of charities. Do you think they had packets set aside for ‘didn’t sign up’? This is the pot with the seeds they sent. Do you think the bees found this foliage satisfying? Looks like grass to me with a couple of daisies!!
