Acid Grassland

Acid Grassland -

Acid grassland occurs on free-draining, nutrient-poor soils above sand or gravel base layers. Growing within this habitat are plant species tolerant of acidic soil conditions such as common bent and sheep's sorrell. In Kent there is little acid grassland remaining, with only 375 hectares recorded in the Kent (KHS2003) - two and half times the size of Hyde Park.
