Grass Seed and Horticultural Fleece
Joss and Danny spent the day working together on the banks. Their first task was to scatter a Preseed fertiliser over the soil which will provide essential nutrients for the germinating Perennial Rye Grass seed that they scattered over the fertiliser. A large board was held at the bottom and the top of the banks to prevent the seed from landing on the paths.
Once sown, horticultural fleece was carefully laid over the seed to help create the perfect conditions for it to germinate and protect it from hungry birds.
