Box of woodland bulbs

This Sunday, from 10-12, is our last 2023 bulb planting session in Chris’ Wood (by the Art Pavilion). Last weekend a small team of us prepared the area by removing nettles and brambles and so the ground is good to go.

We have a good mix of winter aconites, snowdrops, bluebells, wild garlic and wood anemones that will provide Chris Wood with a great range of woodland flowers from late December to May

How can you help?

Just pop along for as little or as long as you like. Moral support helps too: If you walk by just say “Hi”.

Who can come? Anyone! We have folk of all ages come: with friends, on their own, or with their kids or grandkids. (Note: Children must be accompanied by an adult).
What to wear: Dress for the weather – so something warm and a waterproof in case of showers. We have pairs of gloves, some bulb planters and hand shovels, but it would really help if you are able to bring your own. Something to kneel on is a good idea (a foam matt or even a plastic bag).
When to meet: This Sunday from 10-12.
Where to meet: We will be in Chris’ Wood (see map below), which is just south of the Art Pavilion and behind Clinton Road (by the Grove Road Texaco Garage).
Weather: It is looking mighty fine – dry and sunny!
