April Update

A busy month for the Bloomers, so we were more than grateful for the help of our new member, Pat, as we weeded and tidied barrier baskets and sites around the town. With warmer weather arriving, we were able to have extra outdoor sessions and ensure that things were ready for the spring visit of the Yorkshire in Bloom judges. We visited a variety of garden sites around the town, including centre Vale Park. Once again, the sun smiled on us and we felt that we made a positive impression. Members Rhona & Marie made sure that the judges did not leave hungry, providing us all with a delicious home-made buffet. The judges’ first report will arrive next month, and then they will return in July to make a second judgement, so lots to keep us busy.

Castle Hill pupils have been getting into the swing of gardening again, now that their allotment has re-opened. They have sown a variety of seeds, including giant sunflowers, sweet-corn, peas, beans and herbs. It’s been good to have younger pupils involved and enjoying growing vegetables and flowers.

All entries for ‘Open Gardens’ events are now in, and we are confident that there is going to be a big bunch of lovely blooming gardens to visit. There will be a map to show their locations around the town. The event takes place on the weekend of July 10th – 12th.
