Attracting pollinators

Wild flower seeds Miracle Gro June 16

I went to a Planting Up Whickham committee meeting recently. I had been send a parcel of goodies by Miracle Gro. In it was a couple of big bags of wild flower seeds for attracting pollinators. I have given one to the Whinnies Community Garden in Sunniside where my allotment is to plant there but I took the second to PUW in the hope I could interest them in planting up a bed beside the library with them. Alas, I wasn’t aware a member of the group has already made a fantastic job of planting up that bed. I had a look when I left the meeting. (See photos below). I'm still looking for somewhere else to plant the seeds though time is starting to run out.
