At short notice the Borough Council delivered 500 x Snowdrops and 500 x Aconites – all ‘on the green’ (i.e. well rooted with full stems and leaves). We had to get them planted in a hurry, and volunteers stepped forwards to help on 25th February 2018.
But because of fears of frozen ground a last-minute postponement was circulated. As happens, a few volunteers who hadn’t received the ‘postponement notice’ did nevertheless turn up and perversely we found that the ground underneath the large oaks was in fact in perfect condition. So, although bitterly cold, the five of us got busy! Apologies go out to all those volunteers who, but for the ‘postponement’, would have joined us.
Sarah directed the planting and we have created a ‘Spring Bed’ which will in time show well.
