On Tuesday January 14th 2020 we began transforming The Gurney Court Road bus stop into a Buzz Stop by planting six pollinator-friendly saplings (rowan, wild cherry, hazel, goat willow and crabapple).
Now that our Buzz Stop is on the St Albans City Council’s meadow mowing schedule, we are happy to say that the grass was kept long and wildflowers had the chance to flourish. This Summer we identified a few natives such as cow parsley, knapweed and corncockle growing there, as well as some interesting fungi!
On Saturday November 7th 2020 we decided to add to the biodiversity of the site by planting a small patch of native wild flower seeds. We hope this will lead to an even more colourful display this Summer.
On Friday, November 27th, Wilderhood Watch members Andrew and Kathy planted 70 wild daffodil bulbs, as well as around 200 narcissi two weeks later, which hopefully should flower this coming Spring.
