Description

National Museum Cardiff's Urban Meadow, showing the site 'before' and 'after' the meadow had been cultivated. Please scroll through to see all the images.

 

The site of our Meadow was previously short mown grass and offered little to attract wildlife. To create the Meadow we first allowed the grass to grow taller to see if other plant species would grow. We then removed small patches of turf and planted both seeds and plug plants of flowers and grasses. After planting, the area was allowed to grow naturally; we just made sure that plants like dandelions didn’t take over.
