Spring at Grapes Hill Community Garden - 26 May

The Grapes Hill Community Garden Group has been busy planting up the garden and we now have lots of hardy perennials and over thirty different sorts of herbs, from some dramatic pyramidal bay trees to more unusual varieties like Anise Hyssop, English Mace and Corsican Mint.

We've had to do a lot of watering too, with the exceptionally hot and dry weather this April. We've been rewarded with our first flowers, including Dog Violets, Primroses and Wood Anemones under the ash trees and the beautful blooms on our Quince tree, by the gates.

With the lighter evenings, we'll have evening garden tasks on Wednesday 4th May, Thursday 26th May and Thursday 9th June (6 - 8pm). Come and join us! For full lists of
events and plants in the garden, see our website. Jeremy Bartlett.
