Planting for Spring!

On Bulb Planting Day, Caroline, our gardener, led 20 volunteers planting snowdrops, daffodils, tulips, miniature iris, wood anemone and allium. We hope the squirrels don’t dig them up! Just in case, some bulbs were planted in pots and safely stored in our greenhouse. Volunteers without gardens were given daffodil bulbs in pots, to grow on their window sills at home. Homemade cakes and tea were enjoyed by all.

On Saturday 20th November, 10am – 4pm, we need volunteers to help with leaf gathering to make ‘leafmould’, our own compost.

Andrew retires as our gardener

We marked Andrew’s last day as our gardener with coffee and Jill’s delicious cake. For over 10 years Andrew gave advice to our Committee and guidance and encouragement to our volunteers, helping to develop and maintain Olden Garden as a valuable community resource. We will miss him.

Volunteer with us on Tuesday 28th September

Workdays are open to everyone, not just Garden members. New volunteers are welcome. Gardening experience is not necessary.

Come along and join us for coffee and biscuits and help look after the Garden. We need more volunteers! The Garden door will be open 10am to 4pm.
