Wildlife Planting at Oswestry Cemetery
Sarah said "Shropshire Wildlife Trust's Oswestry branch has previously worked with Oswestry Town Council on the Flowers for Bees project in Cae Glas Park and Arren Roberts invited us to come up with an idea for commemorating the people buried in unmarked graves. The wildflowers planted here will be a beautiful way of honouring their memory.
We have planted: cowslips, violets, knapweed, field scabious, ladysmock and ox-eye daisies. Yellow rattle seed has also been sown. This annual plant has a yellow flower and is very attractive to bees. It is also known as 'the meadow-maker', as it is semi-parasitic on grasses, enabling other, less dominant species to grow."
