Our work over the spring and summer means the copse is looking a lot less overgrown. Indeed there’s now sufficient ground visible for us to spend a couple of mornings planting seed and bulbs of native woodland plants. We hope this will provide a more varied habitat, initially for insects and then for the birds and animals that live on them. It should also mean there are more flowers in the copse for humans to enjoy as well.
This was possible thanks to a grant from the Millennium Stadium Charitable Trust under a scheme to improve Wales’s environment and green spaces for communities to enjoy. The grant covered the cost of 400 square metres worth of seed and 1500 bulbs – we just had to provide the scattering and digging effort.
