Let the wild flowers grow in KENT. started this petition to Folkestone and Hythe district council

Bees are in steep decline, so are many other insects that used to be plentiful.
If we leave at least some of our lawns grass areas in the town and parks free from mowing we can support the regeneration

Thriving wildflower meadows are an increasingly rare sight – more than 97% of them have been destroyed since the 1930s, disappearing under the plough or being converted to silage fields.

If we put off mowing until September it gives the wildflowers a chance to complete their cycle of growing, flowering and setting seed. 

Chances are you’ll get meadow buttercup, oxeye daisy and bird’s-foot trefoil on neutral or limey soils. On the latter, maybe you’ll get cowslips, that rarity clustered bellflower or the beautiful blue pincushions of field scabious in late summer.

SIGN UP now and support YOUR local environment.
