Members of the garden group will be on hand to answer questions and we hope our visitors enjoy the experience. The main reason for the open day is of course funds. We are desperate to continue with the Jurassic Garden. The next stage will be laying out and putting down the ammonite shaped path. We have the path edging material but funds will be needed for the infill and then to start planting up with large ferns and other suitable plants.
The pond is looking good at the moment and we are trying to keep on top of the wretched algae which has appeared. As soon as it is removed it returns by the next day.

Lastly another parastic bee was spotted yesterday around the vegetable beds. It awaits identification. It was watching other small bees waiting to move in when the chance arose.

We look forward to welcoming you on Saturday. The weather forecast is good. There is much to see and enjoy in the garden and we hope that your generosity will help us move forward with the Jurassic phase of the school garden.
Once again Saturday July 5th from 14.00 to 16.30
