On Sunday 25th March a team of volunteers stripped off turf from an area close to the base of the banking below Comiston Road. This is in preparation for the creation of a new area of wildflower planting which will be aimed at attracting bees. We are grateful to Waitrose in Morningside who donated funds to us to be able to buy seed and plants. The area will be seeded  with a  nectar rich mix of wildflower seed. Full details of the seed mix can be seen at http://www.scotiaseeds.co.uk/GetNectar-richQuick.php. Plugs plants will be added further up the bank later in the year.
