We were lucky to have had quite a bit of rain before the event making the weeding and planting of more perennials easier, with virtually no watering needed then, although we need some rain now.
I'll show you a few photos of each of the sites:
Firstly the bed opposite Rose Earle's newsagents where Cllr Nadine Watts led the planting, and described by the people who put up the posters as the best bed they visit:
Swindon Museum and Art Gallery is challenging because it's a tree stump with soil around it, here's a before shot:
The bed on the corner of Newport Street and Devizes Road hasn't been photographed yet either, a job for today.
That takes us on to the Mr Cod bed which is looking fabulous despite only being planted for the first time by us, last autumn, here are some photos:
Following on from the planting at the Let's Look After event the other weekend, I raised a case for the Council to look at the benches by Mr Cod.
The Council have installed a new slat, painted the ends and will be oiling all the timber this morning.
The benches look better and should last longer now they have been sorted.Hopefully, people will enjoy this area more now that they benches have been refreshed and there is some beautiful planting.
