Queen’s Park in Bloom

It’s that time of year again and Ulla’s green fingered patrol will be searching for the best of our front gardens, window boxes and balconies.

Could you be one of 250 residents to get a certificate and prize?

You’ll have to be around on Festival Day (3rd August) to collect your prize in the park.

There is more information here.

GoodGym give some help in our park


On Monday evening, Claire and her team of GoodGym volunteers met up with longtime Friends, Simon and Nigel, to give some very gratefully received help in the park.

You can read more here.

Thank you, Claire and your entire, hard-working team.

New plants

 

We had a very industrious couple of hours work today.

Steve from Continental Landscapes gave us some witch hazel and lavender to plant today and some hops that Claire potted on, to strengthen before planting out.

If you can, take a closer look at the witch hazel. It is such an interesting plant.

 

Errol kindly helped us inflate the tyre on our barrow.

Here are Alison and Simon planting the lavender.

The daffodils springing up amongst the euphorbia was an inspired bit of planting, thanks to Charlotte’s suggestion.

The wild garlic gets stronger every year. Look out for the pretty white flowers further into Spring.

We had a lovely surprise by the roof-top pool on the Bug Hotel. Someone has planted these cheerful violets.

Winter tidying

Recently, Charlotte brought some willow cut-offs from her garden and she planted them, for which we thank her.

Neil refilled the bug hotel and Ray laid some woodland walk path where people are cutting through.

A father brought his 3 year old son and they were wonderfully helpful by picking litter, and came back with a huge bag full!

 

 

 

Our next session is on Saturday, 16th February from 10am until 12, noon.
