Count Down

 Action 79: Autumn is a good time to sow wild flower seeds. The Climate Coalition in the run up to COP 26 has set the challenge of planting a billion seeds. https://together.org.uk/2021/09/13/billionseedchallenge/

If you have a patch of bare earth, dig it over before scattering a thin layer of seeds. If the seeds are too close together they may not grow so well. Water and then leave to slowly grow during the winter months. It may help to cover with netting or a cat’s cradle of string to stop cats and foxes digging up your seeds.
