A quote from Confucius
The garden group has been busy making some purpose built compost bins. The plastic ones did not seem to work that well so we decided to make some traditional bins. It will enable us to turn the compost regularly and get it back onto the plots
The compost bins will be finished next weekend. We have used decking planks as they hopefully will last for many years.
Elsewhere we have start planting up ready for the Jurassic garden ferns and trees. The first plants to go in were the Fatsias and the Corsican Hellabore.
Next weekend we will plant out the Banana plants and some of the smaller ferns.
Spring continues in the garden with many flowers now showing. The Pulmonarias are useful at this time of the year for early bees.

Details of the proposed Easter holiday working party will be posted next time. Come along and enjoy the birdsong, the butterflies and the bees!
