Cemeteries are haven for Harebell and other uncommon plants

Harebell (Campanula rotundifolia) , a rare plant in London, and other species that are uncommon in the capital or Bexley,  such as various low-growing clovers, Trailing St. John’s-wort, Changing Forget-me-not and Ivy Broomrape find a haven in the Borough’s cemeteries where the ground has not been fertilized, weed-killed or re-sown with sports turf grasses.

These Harebells were photographed in Christchurch cemetery, Bexleyheath, by Mike Robinson on 29th July.
