Getting ready for the BALI Landscaping Show

MeadowMat being "grown on" in readyness for the
BALI Landscape Show
Four weeks from now - all being well - our stand at the BALI Landscape exhibition will have been built and the five of us, Kev, Chris, Mark, David Fisher and myself will be taking a well-earned repast in readiness for the show.

If anyone wants ideas on how to Get Britain Buzzing with wildlife, please come and see us on stand E1 at the BALI Landscaping Show on the Stoneleigh showground, 21st and 22nd June.

On the Q Lawns stand will be an amazing building from Cranes Sheds and Summerhouses which will be sporting a rather lovely Enviromat sedum roof.  Enviromat sedum matting is not only a fabulous insulator, it's a magnet to pollinating insects such as butterflies and bees and it provides a safe habitat for many minibeasts - even the less attractive ones such as spiders and beetles.  The great thing about green roofing is that, if space in the garden is limited, a green roof supports wildlife without  infringing on space that could be used for food production.

Also on stand E1 will (of course) be MeadowMat.  Last week, Robert and Ben planted up two trays of low nutrient growing medium with MeadowMat in the hope that we'll have some flowers for you at the BALI Landscape show.  As you can see from the picture, the grasses are already flowering.  I think these samples will be quite impressive by 21st June.

Finally, if you make it to the show, take note of the hornbeam hedge and the clipped box on our stand.  Fantastic wildlife habitat and supplied fully grown by ReadyHedge.
