Ning Planting Lavender Meadow
Ning Planting lavender meadow.
Ning has been putting in large areas of wildflowers and herbs. He covers the grass with a big sheet of black plastic, leaves it for a few months, and removes it. That kills of the vast majority of weeds and grass. Then he plants wildflower seeds, using a container like a big saltshaker. For the Lavender and Sage meadow, he bought starts.
When these bloom they will be awesome. Honeybees love lavender and I think they will love the sage too.
