After talking to a friend about her amazing (and large) wildpatch, I decided to have a small one of my own. At the moment it's looking like a patch of weeds with a few poppies in there (however, I do LOVE poppies). I am persevering with it but I may decide to just fill it with poppies next year.
Does anyone else have a wildpatch and advice for my little one?

We have a patch which is about 5 years old now. Each year it changes, having been planted with wild flower seeds it now has other wild flowers in it and far too many nettles! They need some management such as cutting all wild flowers down around this time of year and leaving to dry. It has not been a good year with all the rain but last year we had loads of butterflies and bees visiting and even small birds eating the seeds from the grasses.
