MAKING WILDFLOWER MEADOWS

I buy lots of second-hand gardening books.

Making Wildflower Meadows by Pam Lewis, who gardens at Sticky Wicket in Dorset, just happens to be the latest, and found in a Scope charity shop for a £1.

I know I shall enjoy turning over the pages of information, photos and illustrations.

I recommend you go see the beautiful meadow gardens at Great Dixter in East Sussex, the home of the late (and in my eyes great) Christopher Lloyd.

One day I shall turn a little patch of my garden over to meadow.

Now that's a lovely thought!

I keep thinking I'll do that with the lawn maybe one day...

Well, the shape my lawn is in, I guess I already have the meadow... now I just need more wildflowers and less weeds!

Hmmm, that's what I'm doing today -- going to see some wildflowers, albeit not at Great Dixter...

There is nothing nicer than a meadow! Your book was a bargain! I have some lovely old gardening books too..my fave is one about making a cottage garden. I just love to sit and read it when I'm having a cuppa!
