29.11.22: Bulb planting with EDDC. Round 1 – Beach Gardens.

EDDC’sĀ  Green Spaces Officer, Russell Gibblett organised for 3000 plus bulbs to go into the newly manure-topped and replanted Beach Gardens borders on the seafront. Exmouth in Bloom answered the call for help and 9 Bloom volunteersĀ  got their trowels into action alongside EDDC gardeners. This is a lovely venue and a treat for us to work here. We planted 3 varieties of Narcissi and several spectacular varieties of Aliums in amongst the new salt-tolerant planting and the established Stipas. So watch this space come the Spring and Summer!

We are often recognised by our backsides!
