    Gardening for wildlife

    Am experimenting with letting the lawn run wild. Results are a bit patchy so far, some bits just look a mess but others are pleasingly colourful. The bees seem to like them too. Might try sowing some wild flower seed in the autumn. Have been perusing the Scotia Seeds website...
