It’s our Seed-Sowing Sunday on 14th April, thanks to the RHS 2013 Britain in Bloom ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ scheme whose theme this year is ‘Edible Britain’.
To mark the beginning of National Gardening Week, we’ll be sowing the fifteen free packs of seeds for easy edible plants – herbs, radishes, beetroot, carrots – which we’ve received from the RHS. There will also be seeds – and probably seedlings – to give away. Please come along and join us at the edible growing garden, London Road Station (south side by bridge)!
We’ll be showing how to sow seeds in different receptacles, from the classic oblong seed tray to plastic cups, toilet rolls, window boxes and guttering. And we’ll also be demonstrating potting on the seedlings when they’ve grown a bit, again using a range of ‘pots’, from the traditional 9cm plastic pots to pots made from newspaper. There’ll be lots to do and hopefully, lots to see! We just need the weather to collaborate.
AND … we hope to inaugurate our public herb planters on Sunday 14th too …
These are two stylish wooden planters which we plan to plant up with popular herbs so that you can pick up your herbs for a tasty supper on your way back from work! Hope to see you on Sunday 14th!
