An Area for Native Species & Pollinators?

    We inherited a beautiful wildflower meadow (about an acre) on our new property, and it is visited by many native pollinators and has only native plants in it. But…it’s the only place on our land that has sunshine, so I need that meadow for the garden and pastured animals. What would you suggest we do? I think the answer may be to keep a section or sections for wildflowers, but many would have to be seeded or transplanted, as they don’t all grow in any one area (they clumped together with their own kind). I tried to find some videos on this, but without luck.

    Here’s a photo of the meadow last week. Zone 6b.

    That is gorgeous. I would consider leaving some strips of the native pasture alternated with your crops. You might also leave the areas near the wooded edge.
