Chinnor Parish Council is urging its residents to follow #nomowmay. Which is an initiative that aims to highlight a way to help our declining bee population by plantlife.org.uk.
No Mow May encourages people to fight the urge to have a perfectly manicured lawn and put the mower away for just a month. At this time of year lawns are cut on average every 2 weeks and this dramatically reduces the number of lawn flowers which play a huge part in the survival of bees and other pollinators by providing vital early nectar sources ahead of the summer. Leaving your grass 3-5 cm long throughout May provides optimum conditions for prolific lawn flowers, and leaving a longer length around the edge or in less visible areas promotes a greater diversity of flowers too.
