    News from the Community Gardens August 2020

    We hope that you are all still keeping well. Finally, with the lockdown restrictions being relaxed we have just started up some of our sessions again, albeit in a much reduced capacity to keep it safe for everyone. If you would like to attend one of the gardening sessions please contact us as below to book a session slot as we unfortunately cannot currently accommodate individuals if they just turn up on the day.

    It is definitely beginning to feel autumnal, especially in the early mornings and the recent heavy rain has been a welcome relief to our watering team. The espalier pears are coming along well and there’s a great crop of beans and blackberries ready to harvest along with tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach, kale and chard.


    Even the autumn fruiting raspberries have started and with endless deadheading the buddleias keep flowering to attract the all important pollinators into the garden.


    Please do come and see us but remember to book a session before coming.
