Council gardeners at Lake Meadows park in Billericay sowed the ‘Sarah Bouquet’ meadow mix, by Euroflor, in the park this spring using designs supplied by the Friends of Lake Meadows.
A Friends representative said: "We have been overwhelmed that so many park users have commented on how amazing the flower meadow is and how much they have enjoyed it."
Park users have used comments like "stunning" about the flower meadow adjacent to the lake, according to the group of volunteers.
The design incorporated an ‘S’ shaped grass walkway celebrating Major Spitty - a local landowner who excavated the lake during the 19th century depression using unemployed farmworkers.
Seeds, planting advice and expertise were provided by Rigby Taylor, which sells the Euroflor meadow seed mixes in the UK. ‘Sarah Bouquet’ provides height, colour and a prolonged flowering period, says the firm.
Around 50 annual flowers are included in the Sarah Bouquet mix which is sown in March and flowers from May through to the first frosts of October or November.
Euroflor and Rigby Taylor consultant Howard Wood said the seed mix was one of the company’s most successful.
