It's getting to be a regular feature, but once again huge thanks to Patrick Costello for his time, effort and great skill in providing the Garden with an archway to complement the Arbour. This replaces the former metal arch which had sadly succumbed to the weather. The climbing roses are looking very healthy and we can now train them up the sides of the arch.
Elsewhere in the garden the new planting of spring flower bulbs made last autumn, especially at the unseasonably hot "Winter Festival", are staring to show and should be at their best over the next month. Thanks here to all those who took part and donated bulbs.
And a date for your diaries: Sunday 12th May we will be holding our Spring event in the Garden, open to all plotholders, family and friends. This year we will open up the theme from just a seed/seedling swap to a Plant and Produce event. As before, bring surplus seedlings along and look to find something different to grow from the plants donated by your neighbours, but also we invite all those who've made jams, preserves, chutneys, pickles etc from crops grown on the site or at home to bring along what you can spare. In return , cash donations will go towards further plants and equipment for the Community Garden.
More details of this event and others will be available soon on this Forum, on the Noticeboard on the site and on Facebook, and if you have any suggestions for this or other events please come and talk to me, Andrew Lawes or Jane Hack.
Happy sowing and growing.
