This weekend we'll be sowing wildflowers in the front section, planting out brassicas and corn and of course there's always plenty of weeding to be done.As always children are welcome and we can assure you there is nothing more satisfying than a nice cup of tea in the sunshine after an hour or so of work.
And now for some very exciting news - next weekend (for the June bank holiday) we'll be opening the garden for the day on Saturday 2nd from 10am - 4pm. The Conservation Volunteers will be joining us to plant up part of the front section of the garden with a selection of herbaceous plants. We need as many hands on deck as possible as we have to get 3,500 plants in the ground - yes, you read that right. It should be do-able but as with all things many hands make light work. Obviously we know most people can't stay for the whole day but even if you could make it up for an hour or so at some point that day it would be greatly appreciated. If you want to bring any friends or family along to join up and join in we'd be happy to see you all. This is great progress and we hope the third section will now be open a lot more regularly for visitors to the park. And for those of you who have more of an interest in ornamental gardening than the vegetables, this is a great step forward.
