Key Stage 2 Eco team members were very busy today raking and collecting the reminants of the wild flowers on the bank. 

Ryan's granda brought along a 'fiddle' to sow the rattle seed.  

This seed will suppress any grasses which may grow on the bank before next summer.  

Primary One decided to go out to see what was going on!

We hope that the beautiful wild flowers bloom again next year. 

We would like to give a special  thanks to EcoSeeds Wildflowers Strangford for kindly supplying the Perennial Hi-Colour seeds that created the beautiful display in our wildflower bank last year and also for the yellow rattle seed required to treat the bank.
