Replanting has started....

Today we started to replant the troughs with summer bedding, the plants will take a while to settle in but hopefully with a little bit of summer sun (if we are lucky! )  they will soon be putting on a colourful display, there was even time for a cuppa!

On the way back to the car, I took a snapshot of the colourful displays in the library beds:

Display Boards on view.

If you are interested in getting a close up read of all the information on our travelling display boards, then at the moment you can view them in the library on the mezzanine floor. So why not go along and take your time to read all about our work, it may be just the encouragement you need to join the group.

It`s a tough job...but it has to be done!

The annual job of emptying all the troughs and planters in readiness for summer planting has begun in earnest. Our small group of volunteers could really do with a helping hand at this time of the year, it`s a true saying that `many hands make light work` so if you have free time any Tuesday morning, you will be most welcome to join us. The plan this year is to empty all the barrier troughs of the small shrubs which are becoming a bit too established, remove the bulbs to dry out, and check the soil is in good condition for replanting. Here are the shrubs from just five of the troughs potted up and ready for us to find a new home for them:

And some of the bulbs drying out in a sunny porch:
And now a bit of `me time` to work on my own garden:

We are hoping to make lots of new friends with our campaign to launch  `Friends of Pudsey In Bloom`. Hopefully we will get some response from the numerous leaflets collected from us on the day.
