10,000 geraniums and a banana

Wellies and waterproofs at the ready, we’ve had a behind-the-scenes tour of West Ham Park Nursery. Many of us had wondered what went on in the greenhouses at the side of the lovely West Ham Park; none of us had any idea of the sheer scale of planting for City of London displays and events by a remarkably-small team. We were also shown around the educational wildlife area and the new food growing plot. Many thanks to West Ham Park Nursery for a fascinating insight into its work, some great tips on eco-friendly pest control – and some spare plug plants to take away. Thanks too to FOAG member Alison for organising the visit.
