"Went to mow a meadow..."

In The Sentinel...

"[Stoke-on-Trent City Council] and Staffordshire Wildlife Trust have secured nearly £60,000 of external funding for the Blooming Stoke project, to revert 50 acres of land in the city to create new tallgrass meadows. Each location will be mown twice a year... Funding for the project has come from the Sita Trust, Natural England and the People's Postcode Lottery."

The article doesn't say if all the cuttings will be removed to reduce soil fertility, which is what wildflower meadows need.
