June is bustin’ out all over…!

Hello! It’s been a while – how have you been? Using all this lockdown time to work on your garden? The combination of torrential downpours and a lot of sunshine have made gardening interesting, to say the least.

Yesterday a couple of us met up (in a responsible, socially-distanced way, of course) to tackle the nectar bed at the Kingfisher. It had been looking very promising at the beginning of May…

Unfortunately, it then took a bit of a beating whilst work was going on at the Kingfisher – used as a resting place for a ladder and blocked off by fencing, with no access for us.

At last, yesterday, we finally managed to get to work – we removed the damaged plants, and trimmed back the fleabane around the edges.

We put in many new plants (donated by Sudbury in Bloom) to fill the gaps, and gave the soil a much needed drink – it’s all looking a lot healthier. As well as the red and purple of the salvias and verbena bonariensis, etc, there are sunny marigolds around the edges, and soon there will be pops of pale pink and white against the green. Next time you visit the gym or pool, do swing by to see how it looks!
