The English Meadow
Available in Stock
Modern farming almost eliminated meadows from our countryside but these ‘beautiful, therapeutic reservoirs of a unique eco-system’ are now gradually returning. Drawing on the author’s experience of creating and managing a flower meadow, this book surveys different meadow types and the tools, crafts, buildings and wildlife associated with them; it also shows how churchyards, rooftops and roadside verges are helping the resurgence of wild grasses and flowers. Appendices list notable English meadows, rural museums and conservation organizations. Slightly off-mint.
