Community Garden - Update

Is there anything happening this week end?

The weather has been too wet to allow us to dig over the soil this weekend. We will take the Easter weekend off. Early next week, the new topsoil will be delivered, banner sign put up and concrete base for the bench laid.

Next week

Next Saturday, 10th April we will meet to spread the topsoil and give the garden its new shape. This will be hard but rewarding work. We need many hands but spreading new soil will be more fun than digging and, we hope something the children can join in with too. We will also lay out the path and edgings, ready for paving. This time, join us for some homemade cake as well as tea and biscuits!

What Next

We can start the planting once the soil is spread out and the path ready. There will be olive and cypress trees, lavender, wall climbers, vines and perennial flowers. Gravel will be laid around the paving stones. There will also be space to plant any spare flowers you may want to offer from your garden. We plan to build a pergola – if this is something you could help do, please let us know.

    • Gardeners and critics unite!

      The loss of trees is becoming an issue locally. The wonderful false acacia at the junction of Mayes Road and Coburg Road was removed because it ‘had a fungus’ - just in time for the planning application to build on the petrol station site beside it.
