Hove Lagoon Planting
There will be 2 main types of planting at the new Hove Lagoon site - meadow borders and medicinal herb gardens: The wildflower meadow has been developed by John Chambers Wildflower Seeds and is unique to this site. The mix has been selected taking into account the soil type, environmental considerations and flowering time to create a balanced blend of species.
The meadow is then enriched with bulbs and plug plants to provide a perennial, low maintenance and high impact border. This will extend the season from early flowering bulbs in January and February, to structural grasses and seed heads retaining their form deep into the winter months.
