I planted this diverse hedge 10 years ago. Now a rich habitat offering shelter, shade, fodder and carbon sequestration benefits. Time to plant more and be more strategic

The showers last night and today are very welcome, however be sure to roll in autumn reseeds and other mixes where possible to conserve moisture, rolling twice can significantly aid establishment!

Organic Stubble Turnips! We'll be taking delivery of these later this week. If you're going to require them this season and haven't placed your order, we’d advise you do ASAP as they're in short supply and demand is high with everyone short of winter forage.

Yarrow. Part of a herbal seed mix from I've been over-sowing on my paddocks. It kept growing during the drought when all else shrivelled and kept my show sheep thriving (& winning!) Great for insects when it flowered in the spring too

Thanks both! I've had a quick look on their website already and used their excellent tool. May go for their chicken scratcher sward then see how it fares, adding vetch seed and clover plugs in subsequent years. Not a big area but interesting design!

Won in mine too think I'll plant more of it. Perhaps try growing it like sainfoin or lucerne for hay.

Red clover also done well and the two are great companions. Bloat prevention from the BFT

Wow, really! Usually water-loving. Why doing so well you think? Deeper rooted than other species??

Common in our dry semi natural grasslands here. Good roots. Small leaf area. Leguminous.

I have fields of mixed native pasture that in the summer turn to just fescue and lotier (the French word for birdsfoot trefoil, from the Latin). It's the first thing to grow after a hot summer too.
