Sandpit Lane Buzz Stop

We are excited to report that our latest Buzz Stop is now on the Council’s tall herb mowing schedule, meaning it will only be mown once a year in Winter. This will allow the already diverse mix of wildflowers on the site a chance to flourish, providing food and habitat for the many insects who depend on them.

This site is home to a wide variety of wildflowers, including self-heal, which provides much needed nectar and pollen to pollinators in early Spring (top right).

Fiona from St Albans Pottery and co-ordinator of our Heath Rd and Walton St Wilderhood Watch group brought this species-rich verge to the SA Council’s attention. Her hard work resulted in it becoming one of our newest Buzz Stops!
