New experimental plot in the University campus

At the end of September, we impatiently waited for sunny weather. It was necessary to sample the faculty garden, and especially to find out what a new plot seeded with "Šumava regional seed mixture" looks like. In the place where the bare land remained due to construction work, we established an experimental flowering meadow this spring using two methods: the sowing of a regional seed mixture, and the application of remnants after hay. The latter is a traditional method that was commonly used in the past. Everything that remained after hay storage in the barn was swept out. This material was very rich in seeds of a variety of species. It seems now, that the sowing of seeds wins as daisies, cornflowers, and carrots have already bloomed in the plot. But the next season will fully show the power of both methods.
