Manure Mulch

Thank you to Corinne Hibberd, Initiatives Manager, LBWF Environment & Regeneration for organising the installation of the plaque

Today a group of residents spent half an hour mulching the flowerbed with well rotted manure.

As well as giving much needed nutrition for revitalising the depleted soil, by slowly introducing organic matter we hope to improve the moisture retention properties of it too. This will help over the dry summer period.

We hope to organise a meet sometime late February to sow some annual flowers (any surplus seed saved from your gardens last season would be much appreciated, feel free to email us with any suggestions or requests). We will also concentrate on weeding around the three Plane trees in the vicinity of the flowerbed and plant some vigorous groundcover.
