How well do you actually know your lawn? It seems a funny question really and you may think it’s just that grassy stuff that you have to mow every few weeks; but did you know that a root around can show up all sorts of other plants, which if you allow them to grow just a little bit will make for a fascinating new world below your feet?
Delving amongst the blades of grass, all sorts of little leaves begin to appear which, whilst tiny at first, will eventually display a flower.
So, what might you expect to see? You will likely already be familiar with the common daisy, creeping buttercup and dandelion but other plants include ribwort plantain, broad-leaved plantain, red and white clover, ground ivy, dove’s-foot cranesbill, slender speedwell, germander speedwell, common mouse-ear and of course; carpets of moss.
