All together now…

One of the things we love about Abbey Gardens is that we grow communally. And with Charlie’s wonderful greenhouse up, this Saturday it was gardeners at the ready for some propagation. Garden club leader Hamish didn’t just tell us how to plant the seeds – he explained how each type of seed grew. After our tea break and a chance to admire the first of the tulips (well done, last Autumn’s bulb planters) there was some team potato planting, with all new varieties this season. There’s still plenty to do so come along to one of our garden club sessions and help get the planting started.

A change to our usual monthly meeting schedule: because the first Saturday of next month falls on the Easter bank holiday weekend, our next meeting will be next Saturday, 31 March at 2pm.
