Kent's Plan Bee "No Mow May" Campaign - Pledge to not mow your lawn through May

No Mow May

Plantlife’s No Mow May campaign doesn’t ask you to do much. In fact, it asks you to not do anything at all…

Just lock up your lawnmower on 29 April and let the wild flowers in your lawn bloom, providing a feast of nectar for our hungry pollinators.

What is No Mow May?

If you haven't already, it’s time to put away the lawnmower and strimmer, sit back, relax, and tune in to the gentle hum of your local pollinators.

‘No Mow May’ is a campaign by the charity Plantlife to let your lawn grow throughout May and provide a carpet of flowers for our pollinators to feed on. Why not give it a go this year to see what colourful flowers appear and the pollinators that they attract? Even leaving a small patch of your lawn uncut will make a big difference. For more information visit the Plantlife website.

Let It Bloom June

If you complete May and want to continue not mowing, you can leave your lawn uncut into June, even July and August. This will allow the flowers to continue to bloom and go to seed, giving you more flowers for the following year.

What is KCC doing for No Mow May?

Kent’s Plan Bee team have been busy behind the scenes pulling together many KCC departments, including Highways and Fastrack, to put aside mowing some of the land they manage for No Mow May.

Now, we want to know how this links into the wider Kent landscape and see who else is taking part in No Mow May. Whether a garden or allotment, or you’re a business or landowner looking to pledge a larger piece of land, we want to hear what you have planned!
