Lochee Park wildflower project #dundeewestend

Residents will have read recently about projects to create wildflower meadows in various parks across the city.

One of these is to be at Lochee Park and I asked the City Council for clarification about what is proposed here.

The council's greenspace team leader has advised me as follows :

"At Lochee Park the area of biodiversity grassland will have yellow rattle seed sown into the existing grassland. 

This will help to reduce the vigour of the grass and encourage wildflowers to establish naturally. 

This project is currently being implemented as the Yellow Rattle needs several days of frost to germinate successfully."
