We want to hold community planting sessions, plus sessions for school groups, throughout the Autumn of 2021, to transform sections of the gardens, into places full of wild woodland flowers for everybody and nature to enjoy. Native British Daffodils, Bluebells Fox Gloves and Anemones will be planted with the aim of adding 3,000 bulbs or plants to the Gardens. These native species have been chosen as the longest lasting, easiest and most successful to grow for naturalising, multiplying and self-seeding beneath trees and shrubs. All are welcome to come along to the sessions to plant and one of the planting areas will be set aside as a lasting as a living memorial to those lost in the pandemic. For our local schools this will provide a rare opportunity for children to experience planting and also to be able to return to see the results year on year, giving children a sense of achievement and involvement.
