Our Latest News - July

July Update

This was a very busy month for the team, made more challenging by very warm weather. Not only did we have the BBC filming us for the ‘Britain in Bloom’ programme to be broadcast next year, but we were also preparing for the visit of the Yorkshire in Bloom judges. Work carried on apace to develop the new stumpery / fernery in Patmos garden; but we were unable to complete this due to the severe heat affecting the plants.

Judging took place on Friday 13th, and although we had the BBC following us around, we were lucky to get a few showers of rain to freshen up the plants which had been struggling in the heat. We knew there were one or two areas that required improvement but the barrier basket and planter displays in the red theme looked bright and made a good impact. We had done our best and could only cross our fingers.

This month we also took part in the Country Fair with a stall, promoting our group, giving out free seeds, a raffle and advertising our forthcoming local garden competition. Another very hot day brought the crowds out and we were well supported.
