No mow , the story continues…..

May 2019 , Alex White and Say no to the mow. There is undoubtedly a squeeze on wild habitats with what seems an relentless expansion of urban areas and demand for new housing , shops , schools and factories in the U.K..

However there is a growing movement, say no to the mow, basically translated it means leaving a small part of your garden , or for local councils parts of your grass verge to grow naturally during spring and early summer creating mini wild meadows  which in turn helps our local Wildlife.

There can be a cost saving for local councils, but the real winner has to be the insects and pollinators, who in turn provide food for birds and small mammals .
