University Hospitals Plymouth embraces No Mow May
By not mowing green spaces as part of No Mow May, a range of new flowering plants like bluebell, primrose and red campion, have grown in University Hospitals Plymouth (UHP) grasslands, bringing in pollinators.
In May, a member of the UHP team organised a BioBlitz survey on the Orchard alongside the Trust Volunteer Manager, the Joint Hospital Group and Grown That Way. 19 quadrats were spread within the Orchard, and surveys were conducted over an hour. In total, over 25 plant species were identified, and signs of robins, sparrow, magpies and blackbirds also recorded.
