A comprehensive study of the flora of the central area of the Chilterns in Buckinghamshire
has been undertaken by Tony Marshall and is being made available for downloading
free of charge from this web site.
Some people may find the Pollinator Friendly Garden in Prestwood rather uninteresting
at this time of year but, look closely and you will find a lot of interesting colour.
Gone are the bright reds and yellows of the summer flowers and the vivid greens of
the foliage but these have been replaced by gold of the grasses flanking the entrance,
the bronze of the teazle heads and the dark browns of the old buddleia flowers.
Gardens don’t have to be made neat and tidy by cutting down all last season’s perennials;
leaving some to die back naturally with the soil undisturbed provides habitats for
many beneficial insects to over-winter.
