2014-2019 – Perennial meadow: Seed vs Turf

Rhoda Maw offers professional planting advice, often gained from personal experience. Like here, where I had previously really enjoyed my meadow of all Annual seeds, I thought I’d try a Perennial meadow.

There is lots of discussion about Seed verses Turf, so I thought I’d do a trial in my own garden to see how they compare. Have a look and see what you think.

Turf laid and seeds sown early December 2014 (would have been better in Oct or November, which may have made a difference). The weather had been mild and wet, but there had been some frosty nights, so they most probably were both hit straight away with the cold.
