Volunteer Fair dry root whips
First things first - have you all planted up your bare root whips from the Volunteer Fair. If you have, please please please send us a photo to email@example.com.
If you haven't and you don't think you will be able to then please do let us have them back and we'll get them in the ground!
We've been getting lots of reports of hard wood cuttings being taken and self sown saplings being potted up ready for nurturing. Just waiting for some photos. We believe we have at least 100 hard wood cuttings potted up and at least 30 self sown saplings.
The second planting party will take place at Stones Close Allotments starting at 9.30am on Saturday 29th February. Please just turn up with old clothes, boots or wellies, gardening gloves and whatever else you think might be of use. They have 200 hedge trees to plant and it would be great to get them all in on Saturday.
After discussions with Peter Eardland The Thame Wild Gardens project is now supported by 21st Century Thame. They have a facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/2577398445829765/about/
. You can read about them there. If you are interested in encouraging wildlife into your garden and you don't know where to begin please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project will be providing local information about how to make your garden more wildlife friendly. We'll be working on gathering useful materials to make bug hotels and hedgehog houses out of and sharing what we have with anyone that it keen on joining in. Watch this space !
Thank you for your support.
