Hello Friends,

Unbelievably the last session of the gardening year is upon us and we will meet this Saturday, 10th November between 10:00 a.m. and noon at the Bothy Garden.

Not too many different jobs this time, and they will include:


  • line the pallet planter with weedproof membrane and fill with compost – if time, plant with wild strawberries and sedum
  • move dead courgette and tomato plants etc. to the compost heap
  • mulch
  • move grass clippings to compost heap
  • turn compost heap
  • remove rotten wooden post
  • help yourselves to any well-rotted compost if you’d like to take some home
  • enjoying refreshments

I’ll bring some tools and refreshments as usual and if you have a trug/bucket you can bring during the work party, great.

Looking forward to it
