by allowing the plants to flower, it can create enough nectar for ten times more bees and other pollinators. You’re also more likely to spot a greater variety of flowers popping up in your garden

always happy to see the bees in the garden, and I hate mowing the lawn anyway. Sounds like a challenge for me

We are but not intentionally. My husband has a bad back is suffering sciatica too so our lawns have been mowed for 2 weeks.

I really don't enjoy cutting the grass but I am beastie fodder and can guarantee I will be the first to be bitten in our family, no matter how much I imbibe, so it's a necessary evil to keep it short. There are plenty of flowers, lavender and fruit trees though to encourage the pollinators.

There is no way I could leave the grass uncut, I wouldn't be able to use my garden. Apart from ankles bitten to bits I would be treading in unseen cat gifts as I have a neighbour with 11 of the blighters.

Not for me I’m afraid, I have enough plants in my garden to attract wildlife and I do like a mowed lawn

Crikey, it would be a nightmare if I didn't mow the grass. I do have lots of plants and also have lots of foxgloves for the bees. They must like my garden as I have lots of big fat bees.

Our son wouldn't be able to play in the garden if we didn't now the lawn, so we won't be taking part.

No, because I don't follow all of these fancy monthly trends.

I noticed the local council near me at least leaving the patches of daffodils when they were mowing the grass verges.

Hmm nope not for me. Gotta cut the grass now and then to keep the garden looking good. That being said I just been to the local graveyard now that hasn't been cut in ages. Soon the grass will be as tall as the gravestones!
