Pictorial meadows at Manor Oaks Farm

Sheffield has gained a reputation for it's development of pictorial meadow mixes, using both annuals and perennials. We live not far from Manor Oaks Farm where many of the types of meadows are on display. Below are a few photos from my recent visit. The different types mean that whilst some meadow areas may have peaked in June-July and are now going over, others have just come into their full floriferous beauty.

Manor Oaks Farm is not far from the city centre, just a short bus road or a c. 20 minute walk from the station, so it is easy to get to. I highly recommend it.

Visit the Pictorial Meadows website and find out more about the type of meadow mixes they have created, plus seeds mixes available, including those used at Olympic Park in London for the 2012 Olympic Games.
