How a paddock changes in four weeks

It’s exciting to see a paddock take shape and marvellous how quickly it gets going under the right conditions. This paddock, which is wrapped around the garden, has been sown to a perennial rye grass (One50 for all those farmers wondering) and a couple of different clovers. Clover is not only top quality feed for cows, it helps make nitrogen available to grass, reducing our reliance on fertilisers.
