Gardening Club plants herbs

The brick bed in Oxford Street square has now been planted up with a variety of plants and herbs. There is a medicinal herbal theme to the planting and we will soon see many native herbs such as Yarrow [Achellea], Foxglove [Digitalis], Camomile, Angelica, Thyme, Marjoram and Lemon balm sprouting forth. The strawberries and some of the spinach have been left in place and we have scattered a few nasturtium seeds so watch this space!

Any help with weeding, watering and general removal of litter would be much appreciated.

Thanks to Simon, Steve, Erica, Tom, Julian and Anne for the planting, thanks to Riverside Garden Centre for donating some of the plants and the Banana Boat for helping with watering.

      We also have a community orchard on Park Street.
