Friday, 8 June 2018

Today another bunch of willing employees from local building components company Crane, joined our Garden Club regulars to tame the weeds in the Forest Garden ready for our Open Day on Sunday. Luckily they had good weather and really seemed to enjoy their morning. Well done guys and thank you!

We hope to see you and your families on Sunday when we host our Open Day, Bake Off and Fun Dog Show on Ransom's Rec. 

More unusual edibles planted in our Forest Garden

Monday, 16 May 2016

On April's activity Sunday, volunteers spent the morning planting unusual edibles in our Forest Garden. These included a couple of Apricots - one Tomcot which is a late-blossoming variety and one Orange Summer, which fruits later than most apricots. The beauty of these later-flowering varieties is that they come out after the early frosts and therefore have a better chance of being pollinated and producing actual fruit!

New Timber Pergolas Transform our Treasured Space

The pergolas are now up at the Triangle Garden, transforming the refurbished meeting space and giving it a real sense of scale and structure. As well as acting as entrance points to the space, they provide a framework on which to grow a host of flowering climbers, providing nectar and pollen for bees, and a feast for the senses of people walking through. And finally, not to miss a function that vertical posts can provide, the pergolas will support a number of information boards telling people what's happening at the garden and how they can help pollinators in their own gardens. 

Volunteers plant our Pollinator-friendly Garden

Sunday, 16 August 2015

Our Pollinator's Garden is now almost complete, as volunteers from Garden Club, Growing Ability and our Sunday sessions planted up the new raised beds with pollinator-friendly planting over a couple of weeks in June. The plants were chosen from the RHS Perfect for Pollinators list to provide year-round flower for hungry bees, hoverflies and butterflies.
