envirobites.org/2020/05/19/aโ€ฆ Couldn't agree more! Isn't it time we started appreciating our native flora for what it is? Can we PLEASE stop calling them 'weeds'?? Would it really be so bad to have them grow in cracks on pavements or on road verges? ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟโ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒพ

My balcony meadow. I call "weeds" wildflowers. I never call them weeds anymore.

Did you buy a seed mix? What soil did you use? Iโ€™d like to do that next year ๐Ÿ˜บ

I bought a seed mix. I usually don't but I don't have a garden. I used muti purpose compost. It was reduced peat in it. I'll try see if peat free compost works next time. It lasts a few weeks. It's lovely and there were loads of bees. I also put up 3 bee houses. Both are full.

I have levender, rosemary and Ivy on top and the balcony wild flower meadow on the bottom. I tied them well so they couldn't blow away.

Absolutely gorgeous, Rachel. Even a balcony can be a wildlife haven! Just imagine if we all did 'our bit', the difference that would make! ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฆ‹

The levender was lovely before the meadow came up so time wise it worked out well. The bee, moths and butterflies always had food.
