Canford Park at dusk
SusWoT and WoTSoc together in the Park
Hilary Long of WoTSoc has been leading a team of gardeners from both groups in a revamp of the Rose Garden in Canford Park. They have been working with the Parks Department and Urban Buzz to make the Garden more manageable. Over the next few weeks it is hoped the work will be finished, although the weather is making things difficult.
Buglife and Urban Buzz in the park
Work is ongoing and it will be a while before it is finished but progress is being made. Here is a presentation from Hayley Herridge about the new pollinator garden.
SusWoT will have a stall at the Community Fair. We will be selling tomato plants and various seeds at low prices to encourage people to grow their own. Tomato plants have been grown from seed and cost 50p each. Varieties available include:
Sungold a cherry tomato
Tumbling Tom for hanging baskets
Beefmaster for beef tomatos.
There may be others.
Seeds will include
Coriander, basil, parsley.
