Today’s planting was of sedges, rushes and other damp-loving plants along the course of the newly created stream in the extended park area east of the railway embankment. Many of them will produce interesting flowers next year, and will naturalise the shallow banks of this new stream feeding the wetland ponds in the adjacent meadow.
On the Saturday, 15 enthusiastic volunteers turned up on what was a sunny, if rather windy and cold day. We were sustained by hot sweet indian tea and delicious samosas.
There will be more plantings in the area over the coming months – do please tell your friends and if you want to be on the mailing list, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
