Yesterday’s Friday Tidy was all about preparation after our wildflower bed at the Kingfisher had got slightly out of hand. With some wildflowers and grasses doing much better than others and beginning to dominate the bed, we were starting to lose the healthy diversity, the colour and the interest we had aimed for. Such is life!
So, as mentioned before, we’ve made the decision to change the bed to make it even more pollinator friendly, and to try to make it much more interesting and colourful all year round. In the next month we will rejuvenate the soil, and begin planting. Watch this space!
Thank you to everyone who managed to tear themselves away from the buzz at St Peter’s and came over to say hello at the Town Hall – and a very warm welcome to all those who picked up a card, and are visiting our blog for the first time.
St Peter’s 2 March 2019
We are a small group who aim to make Sudbury greener, using sustainable planting in areas that have been slightly neglected in the past. If you scroll down (or perhaps go to the beginning of the blog and work your way forwards) you will see a little bit more about the sorts of things we’ve been doing over the past five years. You will also find information there about other groups and individuals around town who are trying to make a difference by planting up forgotten corners or picking up litter.
We meet on the first Friday of the month at one of our sites in town. By clicking on the ‘follow’ button (near the bottom on the right) you will receive the blog post by email, letting you know where to meet, and about any other events we think might interest you. We will not bombard you with emails (usually only one a month) and we never share your information with anyone else. Of course, you can also just check in every so often to see what we’re doing.
Quay Theatre tidy-up
At our last Friday Tidy we were heartened to see that the buds are coming out on the fruit bushes and trees at the Quay car park garden – they have all survived!
Our next task is to clear the wildflower bed at the Kingfisher car park, and refill with even more nectar-rich plants – pollinators need our help!
No Friday Tidy in February. Instead we are getting together for tea and cake, and a planning session to decide what to do in the coming months. Meantime, keep warm!
