Jubilee Wild Flower Bed - Summer 2011
The Diamond Jubilee Garden in Battle has a naturalised area to
reflect the importance of 'wild' flowers. Some of the flowers are shown here from summer 2011 display on
the site at the Ambulance Station. Seed gathered in 2010 and scattered from flowers originally planted on the site two
years ago by students from Plumpton College at Ivylands, Netherfield, bloomed in full flower and attracted a wealth of bees
and insects. The wild flower bed was planted with cornflowers, cosmos, californian poppies, nasturtium, candytufts and
daisies, and we look forward to an even better display this year when the Diamond Jubilee Garden is completed.
