Spring seems finally to be upon us and things have started growing with gusto in the Station Garden. Unfortunately a good proportion of them are weeds!
Chris, Jean and Nadia recently met at the garden for a spot of weeding and general tidying up. It was good to see several things sprouting up aside from weeds. A plethora of forget-me-nots are covering many parts of the garden. Other than where they were interfering with other plants, we left these because they look very pretty. The flowers are edible and can be used to garnish salads (or cocktails!).
The garden will be open to visitors on the 6th May as part of the the 150th anniversary of Wivenhoe station from 12-2. You are very welcome to come and have a chat and see what's happening in the lovely little garden.
