This is one of many articles covering the subject of " No mow May " , which I think is a brilliant idea . It explains many things , including the beginnings of lawns , which is quite surprising . The stats on the loss of habitats and wildlife are quite frightening . The great thing about no mow May is that , at the end of it , you'll have contributed to an increase in both wild flowers and wildlife . That's good , isn't it ? I'll do it for the next three weeks - what about you folks ?

If there's one thing i can't stand Steve it's 'manicured lawns'. Some people seem to measure their gardens out with such precision it's ridiculous. Wild and free is my philosophy! Reply

I've mowed a bit that would be a problem if left, the rest I will leave for all of May, and the front lawn that we left all summer last year was sooo hard to cut down we're only letting half go wild this year lol, hands and knees with a hedge cutter was hard work! Can't use a strimmer, think of all the wildlife you would chop.. Reply

neither of which I want in my garden they eat the fruit and veg that i grow and share with people . wild flowers are lovely in the right place but they encourage butterflys and bugs which eat my veg. we have specific plants which encourage bees who pollenate our plants. amd ladybirds who eat black fly. and frogs who eat slugs. So Dave will be mowing our lawn it is only small anyway. Reply

I had to cut it yesterday as It hadn't been trimmed for a good month ! I don't use any weed killers or fertilizers and get many bees , insects and birds utilising both my front and back lawns which have a good sprinkling of wild flowers also. Reply

No, we decided against partaking. It’s hard enough mowing it as it is - dodging the showers. If we left it for a month we would need a scythe!
But never fear, we live opposite an empty property and that hasn’t been mowed for many a May, or June, July…. You get the idea!
It’s all behind a hedge but from my bedroom window I can look into the garden where the grass is now up in the cherry trees!

We've no lawn to mow; but have noticed the council have taken into consideration "no mow May" (whether by choice or just cost saving?) ! Reply

Our churchyard is taking part, I walked through it yesterday and have never seen such a lovely covering of buttercups interspersed with a few daisies and different grasses. Reply
