Here are some dates we will be planting and preparing our summer displays
Planting Vertical Gardens
Ashton Gardens Depot on Tuesday 15th May starting at 10am
Planting up the vertical gardens with succulents. The finished succulent display will be installed in the Peace and Happiness Garden
Planting up Golf Bags ready for the Women’s Open Golf Tournament
Ashton Garden Depot on Tuesday 29th May and Thursday 7th June from 10am
We are going golf crazy this year and putting over fifty golf bags about town which will have plants in them. This is light work but there will be a lot to do.
We may be planting into side pockets of the bags which is an experiment (always exciting)
Planting Tubs and Troughs for the displays around town
Ashton Garden Depot on Tuesday 12th June and Thursday 14th June from 10am
The tubs and inserts for troughs from outside the shops and for Crescent railings need to be planted up
We put in the summer bedding in which has been paid for by the businesses in town.
This normally takes a full morning as long as we have lots of help.
We are still gardening fortnightly in the Peace and Happiness Garden and the next date will be Thursday 24th May at 10 for an hour
We meet for a brew afterwards in the Pier cafe
This is an ideal opportunity to come along and meet us to have a chat about what we do
If you are coming along to help please bring a trowel and gardening gloves if you have them
