Yellow rattle in urban meadow

I’ve been working with some local volunteers at Highfield Country Park in Levenshulme, Manchester to manage a few areas to try and create small meadows to enhance the biodiversity.

Last autumn, we sowed yellow rattle seed which I’d collected from a site just 2miles away and I’m very pleased to see that it’s germinated.

18 months ago this area was dominated by thistles. It’s been cut 3 times and now is starting to look more like a meadow; it’ll be interesting to see what other plants come up from the seedbank.
