Following Friday's successful festivities chief co-ordinator, Caroline has this to say about the next action for the garden:
Thank you for the fabulous turn out for Royal Weeding Day ! A great effort all round, & the garden is looking much livelier, & full of promise ! Special thanks to Rupert and Fran for getting / bringing the lavender, and for people who bought seedlings and essentials such as the hose!
Our next date is Monday 30th May 2011, 10am - 12pm ( Bank Holiday )
We have a few gaps left to fill, plus there will be general tidying up / possible thinning / redistributing some plants, as well as planting a few more.
So far we have a rich mix of ( in no particular order ); spring onions, butternut squash, courgettes, sweet peas, marigolds, cornflowers, lavender, crocosmia, calendula, runner beans, decorative peas champion of england, camomile, rainbow chard, turnips, gem lettuces, globe artichokes, potatoes,provencale mixed salad leaves, perpetual spinach, strawberries, parsley, mind, climbing french beans, and sunflowers!!
Please come along on the 30th with gardening tools, watering cans, seedlings, and we could also do with some more sticks for labelling
Thanks again, and maybe see you on the 30th!
And most importantly, if you are passing the plot and are able to water it, ( and the meadow directly down the bank from the plot ) this would be much appreciated. For now we are relying on the local cafes for water ( bring your own watering can / bottle ! ) , or local people carrying the odd bottle of water down , as we are having a pretty dry spring so far !
