As the weather continues to stay warm with
the odd heavy downpour the plants to continue to bloom and the insects
are taking full advantage. The roses are looking wonderful along with
the Echinacae plants in the sensory beds and the rose campions. The
Croydon Road beds continue to be a bit of a challenge due to
difficulties in getting large amounts of water up there and the
generally poor soil quality.
We have now cleared the 3rd rose bed of the
invasive sedge grass which has left us with a large area for planting
new rose bushes. We hope to reapply for a grant from the MPGA to buy
new plants in the new year.
Work is well underway to complete the
interpretation boards for the bog garden and urban orchard. Lindsay,
our designer has put together some beautiful designs and has been busy
helping us complete the boards using stenciling. We hope to have the
boards completed for next week which will be our summer BBQ and AGM.
We have also replanted the former willow
dome area with lavender plants which (if they allowed to grow and
establish themselves) should form a nicely scented low hedge for people
We are sending out notification for our next AGM on Wednesday 30th July.
