New plants, new people

On a gloriously sunny Saturday we’ve been catching up with our planting, there’s been tidying, watering and discussion of the year’s events.

A big Abbey Gardens welcome to garden session leader Felicity, covering for Rosie. Another big welcome for a small visitor – young Mallory, on a first tour of the garden with her mum Marie, who’s one of our trustees. And it’s great to see School 21’s raised bed planted up and ready for Summer crops.

Fancy joining us? Our free, friendly drop-in Saturday community gardening sessions are from 1pm to 5pm, tools and gloves provided. Whether you’re a veteran gardener or starting out, whether you want an energetic job, a delicate job or just to join is for gardening chat and peaceful urban green space, you’ll be welcome too. Drop in for a while or stay for the whole session.
