Pollinator-friendly Planting Cartwright Court 13/05/17

The Cardiff University grounds maintenance team began planting bee-friendly wildflower seeds five weeks ago. Since then the seeds have been gently sleeping in the ground, waiting for rain. Unfortunately they have had a long wait! Cardiff had a very dry few weeks. There was enough rain to wet the flowers’ heads, but not enough to give them a good drink.

That’s all changed with the wet week we’ve just had. The seeds are now finally germinating. But are they growing quickly enough?
