    Update from the Community Gardens February 2019

     

                               

                                                                  Iris Alida

    Update     

    The spring bulbs are out including the first of the daffodils and we’ve been enjoying some lovely sunny days in the gardens. It is great to see the irises we sowed last autumn in flower and enjoy the hope they signal that spring is not too far away. The new raised beds in the poly tunnel are finished and the new staging for the greenhouse is well underway for the sowing soon to begin.

    Our volunteers have done sterling work getting the garden ready for the growing season with lots of weeding and mulching. The potatoes are chitting away and seed compost ready for the sowing to begin next month.

                                                               
    Tuesday afternoons at Oaklands Park Community Garden have stopped for the winter but Wednesday and Saturday morning sessions in the Bishop’s Palace Vegetable Garden continue throughout the year, so do come along as we’d love to see you.
