Funded by GAVO and inspired by our youth volunteers, Jessica and Lara, involving members of the group and their families, and to our delight, children from the gardening club at the Deighton School, Tredegar, who came and planted 600 bulbs last Friday, 10th March.
So far 3,000 bluebells in the green have been planted and 60 snowdrops ( originating from Crimea, brought back by returning soldiers and recently discovered in Norfolk, supplied free with bluebells!) Only
Under the same project, there will be 20 grammes each of foxglove and wild primrose seeds and 500 wood anenomes, which will all be planted in the near future. We hope to have a show from the bluebells and anenomes this year, but the primroses and foxgloves will be next year.another 1000 bluebells to go!!!
We have lots of other things going on as well. Please message or email Susy if you have availability and are interested in volunteering with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
