White Crocus Crocus albiflorus

In the past, the biodiversity was significantly decreased by excessive nutrient content in the soil – this was due to the fact, that there during was a large cattle byre built here and the nutrients from the manure significantly altered the soil conditions. The nature conservation efforts aim at a return to a more favourable status.
