All the colours of the garden

It’s been a week for weeding, watering, planning and planting-out, compost queen Nancy has been taking on the mountain of Spring clearings and on the honesty stall we have bags of garden produce. Come by, take one and leave a small donation for the garden.

Paintbox-bright, the garden has distractions at every turn this week: vivid poppies against rich purple allium and iris, blue comfrey and borage flowers, cheery yellow and white fried egg plant…

Come and enjoy the garden with us on Saturday 17th June, for The Big Lunch and our Summer Fair. Watch this space for details or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

Meanwhile, our free drop-in gardening sessions are on Tuesdays from 1pm to 3pm, Thursdays from 4pm to 7pm and Saturdays from 11am to 4pm.
