Praise for wild flower border in Mannings Heath

Residents in Mannings Heath have been full of praise for the wild flower border that is currently in full bloom opposite the Village Stores in the centre of the village.

Created by members of the Mannings Heath and District Horticultural Society, the resultant display has far exceeded their own expectations.

We sowed the seeds just before the early summer rain started which, in retrospect, we now realise was just right. The excuse for this year’s display of wild flowers was the Jubilee and the Olympics – but we we plan to do it again next year.

Drive into Mannings Heath and the wild flowers are on the verge at the cross roads in the centre of the village.
