If you want to get out and about, get some exercise, breathe in some fresh air, and all while doing something useful, there’s lots happening this week.
On Thursday, Dan and team will be down at Belle Vue Park from 10 – 12:30 as usual. On Friday, why not help us here at greenerSudbury do some tidying up (details to follow)? Then on Sunday join Sudbury in Bloom volunteers to plant up some grass verges. See Dan’s message (below) for more information about Sudbury in Bloom, and Belle Vue Park.
“Sudbury In Bloom have arranged some weekend family bulb planting sessions, and the next is on December 3rd from 10.30 to 12.30, at the Mill Hotel. We will have bulbs to donate to schools and organisations so please let me know if your group would like to participate.”
Dan writes, Daffodils are the perfect bulb…. they do really well and over time a patch grows and naturalises. Tulips on the other hand sometimes lose their vigour and become weak.
The yellow is just the right colour for Easter and often falls well with Mother’s Day. That’s why Grow Your Community recommends them in schools as an easy to grow and pick burst of colour. What better way to get over Winter than to be expectant of a Spring full of life.
It’s not too late to plant bulbs – as long as you can dig a hole 3-5 inches (not frozen) and the bulbs are not damaged or squidgy – often shops sell them at half price now.
Remember we’re at Belle Vue Park this Thursday 10am – 12.30 and there will be the usual activities tending the flower beds. Also some repotting of Money plants if you want a new houseplant. Happy as ever to see new faces.
