Subject: RE: BS: Weapons of mass weed destruction
No area here even suitable or a formal lawn even if we wanted one. And the main grass strip in the field (at a guess 30-40 x 3-4 metres) is also a (never used) farm right of way and is used by a truck delivering logs... It would seem very wrong to have it other than an area that allowed the flowers you mention. Another place we lived had a great spread of cowslips that looked amazing but you had to mow round.

Probably drifting a little from there but if a foxglove sets itself somewhere and you like it, why not leave it there - and Pip even likes a patch of mostly cow parsley as well as bits with mixed wild flowers. I think one (not you, just the principle) can get over excited about "weeds".
