It’s been two years since I started a prairie experiment in a small border on my allotment and I have to say I’ve fallen in love with it. I’ve grown almost everything from seed except for a couple of plants grown from plugs. Each visit to my plot has been met with fascinating insights as the border is in constant flux. I’ve been meaning to share a proper update for ages, and while I could describe how some things have done well and others haven’t, talk about the harsh of the very cold winter followed by all of the drought and mention the fact it’s technically more South African steppe planting, I think the only justice I can do is share some photos from different points in the year. I’ve started a second larger prairie on the other side of my allotment.
