Oberursel in bloom

10 weeks ago the farmers and beekeepers in Oberursel planted seeds in three areas of the town, supported by the farmers’ support group (Landwirtschaftlichen Förderverein).

These areas, known as “Blühinseln” are now in full bloom, offering nourishment for bees, butterflies, and insects.

But not only that.   In the Freiligrathstraße the borders offer some natural protection for the fields and orchards, as it appears that dogs are less willing to cross them than they were previously.

The seeds are a mixture called “Gönninger SommerPracht“, which contains both grasses and a variety of flowers.  Walkers in the Freiligrathstraße are treated to a colourful array on both sides of the road, and there are further beds at the Maasgrund and the Taunus Information Centre.

However people are requested not to pick the flowers, which would only last about two days anyway.  Anyone who would like the mixture at home can buy the seeds in small quantities on-line. [Read more…]
