No Mow May

Scaremow Challenge

We’ve lost nearly 97% of flower rich meadows since the 1970’s, which means that this vital food needed by pollinators, like bees and butterflies is also disappearing.  A healthy lawn with some long grass and wildflowers benefits wildlife, tackles pollution and can even lock away carbon below ground – and best of all, to reap these benefits all you have to do is not mow your lawn in May! With over 20 million gardens in the UK, even the smallest grassy patches add up to a significant proportion of our land which, if managed properly, can deliver enormous gains for nature, communities and the climate. This is why Plantlife is calling for people to get involved with #NoMowMay and let wild plants get a head start on the summer.   #SmallCHAnges
