On Sunday the ever popular and regular visitors to High Beeches Gardens, the Heavy Horses from the Working Horse Trust are back to harrow the wildflower meadow. The grass in the meadow has been cut and the aim of the harrowing is to remove the thatch, scatter the seed and open up the sward, this enables the wildflowers to seed successfully. Many of the wildflowers and grasses provide food for numerous insects, butterflies and moths; amongst them bees, including bumble bees as well as hover flies. Should this spectacle not be of interest, the beautiful blue woodland Gentians are now in flower in the gardens and there will also be crafts and produce on sale along with plants from Rapkyns Nursery. I think there should be enough going on to keep the whole family amused for a few hours and there is a café to provide refreshments once you have been round the gardens which open earlier than usual at 11 am. For more information, go to the Garden’s website www.highbeeches.com, or call on 400589.
