The meadow that Monty sowed on the mound has had a mass of growth. Included in what he sowed are quite a few weeds that have been promoted into growth by the groundwork, and an awful lot of annual flowers which are nurse plants. They're actually providing a cover while the perennials which are much slower to germinate, get established. The banks of the mound are quite steep, which can make them awkward to plant because if you've got a slope the earth erodes, it all gradually moves south. Monty has got some plugs and they are ideal for this kind of mound planting because if seed is sowed, to get the moisture needed for them to germinate, the seed will effectively get washed down the slope. Plugs that Monty uses are coltsfoot, knapweed, devil's bit scabious and sanguisorba. Carol Klein is looking at burnets, also known as sanguisorba. This is an underrated meadow plant which is becoming a big hit in British gardens. Carol also meets Brian Ellis from Baginton in Warwickshire who holds one of the country's finest collections of sanguisorba. Sanguisorba is a member of the rose family. It gets its name from the Latin - sanguis meaning blood, and absorbere to absorb - and it's long been used medicinally.
