The Garden Designer
We are delighted to announce that Sarah Marsh has volunteered to be our Fernery Garden Designer.
Sarah has also agreed to be our Fernery Gardening Group leader and we will now more confidently build a Gardening Group membership who will work under her direction to achieve our goals. It is planned to promote a Saturday Gardening Group, but there will also be ad hoc mid-week meetings that Sarah will announce. (See the Calendar)
The Garden Plans
Sarah has received a brief from the Borough Council on those areas of the Fernery garden which should initially be developed and improved. These will be the beds associated with the dropping well, the bed under the hawthorn tree and the smaller bed below the lime.
Sarah will now work to produce the planting design for these beds, and draw up a list of the plants she would like to include. We will buy stock direct from WHBC’s main supplier for those plants, but Sarah will be free to source any of her choices that are not carried as stock items – and we might presume that this would include specialist growers.
Based on this exhilarating Management step, the WHBC have reiterated their intention to fund the purchase of the plants that are needed, ready for planting in April and May 2018.
