Millbrook Park is looking especially good at the moment with a variety of wild flowers on show. This is a direct result of the Parish Council’s Get Millbrook Buzzing project and the decision to ‘re-wild’ parts of the park and leave them unmown. The flowers will provide pollen and nectar for bees and other insect pollinators.
The Orchard trees we planted in the winter all appear to have taken and several are in flower. June is the month to lookout for Bee Orchids – last year there were 9 plants. Please don’t pick or dig up these rare plants – they have very specific growing requirements and are unlikely to grow in your garden, so leave them for everyone else to enjoy.
