Up­ping the gar­den­ing stakes

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

FUR­THER to your ar­ti­cle ‘Don’t give road flow­ers the chop’ (May 3) on main­te­nance in pub­lic ar­eas and con­sid­er­a­tion of wildlife, I was in Ber­lin last week and noted meadow rather than grass planted at the sides of roads. This has the ad­van­tage of need­ing far less main­te­nance and is ex­cel­lent for in­sect and birdlife. Even in the Wannsee Mu­seum, ar­eas of the gar­den were planted with meadow. It’s bad enough that we’re be­ing beaten at car man­u­fac­tur­ing, penal­ties and Badminton, but now it’s gar­den­ing, too! Ran­dal Sut­tle, Co Wick­low
