Gardened Meadows – how to make them and keep them looking good – Jo McKerr
Webinar now available to rent on the Garden Masterclass site.
A look at composing, managing and caring for meadows, meadow plantings and flowering lawns within garden settings. Gardened meadows are distinctly different from grassland meadows managed for hay, although they can be just as diverse. Some gardens with richer soils and tree cover can still recreate a meadow planting with careful choices of plants and good management systems. We cover the basic principles of composing and management; choice meadow plants and bulbs; the indigenous plant debate; planting for ecological value; balancing aesthetics and ecological benefits, bulbs and plants for flowering lawns; creating seasonality.
