We had a good turnout again, on a fine Autumn morning.
Planting – Wild Flowers
Jenny Hawkins reports that a small team under her direction planted 8 trays, 2 buckets and 2 pots of wildflowers..
Sue planted Red Campion, Dog Violet, Selfheal and Wild Basil on the South side.
Christine and Jenny planted Kidney Vetch, Field Scabious, Knapweed,
Wild Marjoram, (1) Scarlet Pimpernel, Red Deadnettle,
Bird’sfoot Trefoil, Lady’s Bedstraw, Wild Basil, Lesser Stitchwort,
Small Scabious, Goatsbeard, Hedge Bedstraw and Red Clover..
Sara helped plant the last tray of Kidney Vetch..
New leaves were seen on some of the wildflowers we planted months ago which is a good sign!
Before we plant anymore wildflowers Jenny recommends that we dig out all the Dandelion Family (DFs) weeds first on the North Chalk Slope.
Sara and Tony and Harry started to clear the nettles to the side of the North East path, and Margaret and Mary worked on the Top Bath.
Many people helped clear up the leaves that Andrew was blowing.
