Must admit i cut mine with a strimmer and leave it a few inches high Have some nice tiny blue flowers. But with all this rain the grass has took off. Will need a couple of days of sunshine to tackle it again. Js, if you have a large lawn, it may pay you to make an irregular shape in the middle and just let that grow. Then you can mow the rest to your hearts content. If you would like to go that way then in the autumn, mark it out and cut the grass shortish, skuff it up and plant meadow seed.I had seen that done on one of my walks.

Thanks for the suggestions Willpar. I have plenty of wild flowers in the borders but the lawns I usually keep short. I have a couple of small patches where cowslips have self seeded and I leave them until August when they have set seed.
