We have left the bottom half of our garden grow as a meadow with wild flowers which was glorious this year. Do we need to cut it back now or can we just leave it and it will grow back again next year?



Yes its best to cut it after the flowers have finished and the seeds fallen. Best to do it now before it gets wet in the autumn.

And dont forget to clear away the mowings....otherwise leaving it will create a too rich environment and the wild flowers will not flourish.
