Asker Meadow, Bridport

Recipient Meadow

Asker Meadow, named after the River Asker that runs alongside it, is close to the town of Bridport.

In summer 2014, volunteers harvested seed from Dorset's Coronation Meadow, Lady’s Mead at Kingcombe, before its scheduled mid-July hay cut. The seeds were dried and stored ready for sowing into seed trays in August and September - once grown, these plugs be planted into Askers Meadow to commence the restoration works.

The first batch of seeds harvested from Lady’s Mead included plant species such as selfheal, common knapweed, oxeye daisy, pepper saxifrage, meadow vetchling, saw-wort and rough hawkbit.
