In collaboration with Acocks Green Village in Bloom, Birmingham City Council’s parks department have agreed to mix in wildflower seeds with the grass seed that they will be resowing in the springtime on Oak Meadow. The ground is still too muddy, but once it has warmed up a little the resowing of the site will take place, following the disruptive essential maintenance work by Severn Trent Water.
Also notice on this stretch of the canal new planting courtesy of Canals and Rivers Trust and bird and bat boxes that have been installed by local volunteers working with the Canals Trust. All this improvement work will really enhance the natural environment and wildlife. Watch this space.
