Over the last couple of days we have been using the track master to cut the long grass in the wild garden.
Gathering the hay up in large mounds with a rake helps disperse flower seeds and makes it easier to collect.
It’s important to cut and collect the grass several times during the year. If the hay is allowed to break down it will filter nutrients back into the ground, which would encourage grass vigour. A low nutrient soil stops grasses from out-competing the slower growing wild flowers.
