Super praise goes to the workparty of 12 this morning starting in the early mist at the Wildflower bank opposite the Station. Dave came with his strimmer and all the arisings were raked off and bagged up. Wow what a difference that has made. The daffodils in the bank will soon be showing ready to welcome Spring!
We welcomed new volunteer James who is doing an RHS Level 1 course and has joined us for some hands on experience!
Meanwhile Val and Richard worked their way down Marine Way visiting all the sustainably planted boats, to collect up the gorgeous Orange and Violet Pinto geraniums that have been adding that splash of colour to the boats since May. The geraniums have been prepped ready for potting up for overwintering in Sharon’s greenhouse.
Plants that were past their best have been removed from the two tribute boats near the Station but we will leave the centre plaques in til next Spring and will be planting around them.
A final trim of the trailing plants in the Amberol Celebration Planters on the Station concourse and a weed and sweep of the pavers there just finished the ‘spruced up’ look in that area before we joined Gerry and Sharon for coffee at Postcards…….. (must do lunch there soon!)
The last Sunday of the month Workparty will be just before Winter Planting Day (which is on November 3rd), so you may see a few cleared spaces appearing in our displays over the next couple of weeks.
