Our next Project...

We still have almost £300 left from the area management funding we received this year and so we have decided to spend it on planting up 4 Flower tubs in front of the leisure centre. These were put in place by metro to compensate us when we lost a number of flower beds when the new bus station was built. Sadly the plants in them did not survive long, partly due to them becoming waterlogged. So we are going to smarten them up, here`s a picture of how they look now:

Late Autumn Colour...

Rudbeckias grown and planted by one of our members give some late autumn colour to the tripe bath garden:

Thanks to Groundwork.....

We have been given lots of daffodils....1000 to be precise. 500 tete a tete and 500 psuedo narcissi. We decided to plant them at the traffic light junction of Kent Road, lowtown, where there are two grassy verges either side of the road. We set to work on what looked like it could turn out to be a rainy morning, but thankfully it didn`t and the sun even came out briefly. Hopefully this will give a lovely colourful spring display once the daffodils get established.

Troughs looking good....! Thanks to Green Leeds funding.

Thanks to funding we received from Green Leeds Ltd. and with the help of our new member, Lynda, the troughs have been given a spruce up and I am sure you will agree they are looking very smart, all planted up to see us through to next summer. A mixture of bellis, trailing ivy, heathers, skimmia and pansies have made them look very attractive, and the more permanent planting of the small shrubs and heathers will help to give structure.
Judge for yourself.....

Summer Bedding at the ready!

Quite a few of us met today to continue planting up the barrier troughs, we have gone with the jubilee theme of red white and blue, Red geraniums,Blue lobelia and White alyssum. We have decided to get the council to replant the alpine troughs for us, as they really do not seem to be growing well and were beginning to look very untidy. This should inject a welcome burst of colour in the town centre.

Spring Tidy.

A few of the group met to tidy up the Lowtown Garden, grasses needed cutting back, a bit of weeding to be done and finally we mulched the beds with chipped bark.
