PLANTING and SOWING

May is proving to be an incredibly busy month for us.

We have already sown the wildflower seed at the top of Tangier Lane and thankfully there was  a little rain on May 12th to help the seeds to germinate.
The roundabout at the junction of Hoe Road, Willow Road and Cricklemede is being prepared to plant a semi-permanent mix of wild flowers, we have chosen a low growing mix of seeds that will hopefully flower for three years with only a small amount of maintenance.

The flower beds along the Palace walls and the Old Station Roundabout are due to be planted on 27th and 29th May.  Please see our What’s On page for more details on how you can help.

And we will be involved in yarn bombing from 20th May.

WEEDING AND DEAD HEADING

Once the flower beds are planted they will need to be weeded and dead headed, just like your garden at home.  Would like to be involved by adopting a flower bed?  For more information about what will be involved in this please get in touch via the CONTACT US page
