Abbey Gardens on show


Abbey Gardens knows how to put on a display: with Summer finally here, it’s dressed in its cheeriest colours. While our champion waterers have stayed back to keep the garden looking lovely, other volunteers have brought our seed identification game, seed packet decorating, gardening chat, spontaneous games of chess and produce to the two-day Mayor’s Newham Show in Central Park, East Ham. A big thank-you to everyone who gave time to plan, prepare, harvest and help at the stall on a baking-hot weekend.
