Planting up, watering in and the big compost turn-round

On a gloriously sunny Saturday, we’ve been putting in plants, doing lots of watering and there’s been a big effort digging out the compost for mulch and refilling the compost boxes with new clearings. And there have been bees, butterflies, hoverflies, ladybirds and worms working away alongside us.

We’re just planting half of the garden this season to leave the other half of the raised beds clear for repairs. But there’s still plenty to do. Whether you’re new to gardening or an old hand, come and join in with our free drop-in Saturday gardening sessions, 1pm-5pm, tools and gloves provided.
