Scything a wildflower meadow – Gardeners’ Question Time

Scythes on Gardeners' Question Time
Did you hear the Chelsea Special from BBC Radio 4 Gardeners’ Question Time the other day? A question was asked about cutting a wildflower meadow and Bunny Guinness, Eric Robson and Matt Biggs all recommended the use of an Austrian scythe.

“If I was given a choice of a strimmer or a scythe, I’d go scythe any day – it’s a pleasure to use.”
~ Bunny Guinness
