Spring is coming to Wolverhampton
This years bedding schemes for Wolverhampton have long been designed, only waiting for planting at the appropriate time, by our contractors. What about you? Are you prepared for your garden?
Now of course is the time of year when we all start to think about the summer that awaits us in our own gardens; what work needs to be tackled before spring? What will we need to do?
- Clean up the greenhouse/potting shed
- Collect up …
- old clothes/blankets/plastic for warming up the ground
- empty plastic bottles
- pea sticks
- Shopping List
- seed potatoes, broad beans, parsnips etc.
- Tool check
- wash, clean and sterilise pots and seed trays
- anything missing?
- all in good working order?
- any replacements/repairs needed?
Have you thought about the ‘Wolverhampton in Bloom 2011‘ (part of the ‘Heart of England in Bloom‘ campaign)? Entering campaigns such as this, may require a little planning … perhaps it’s something that you, your family and your neighbours could get involved in.
I’ve often pondered on how it would look if an entire street co-ordinated their planting schemes – perhaps with colour, plant type or other theme … what do you think? Would something like that work where you live? Have you ever seen an example of it?
For those of us that are keen allotment gardeners, there’s always something to keep us busy in the potting shed.
