Spring is a lovely month, especially after a long, cold winter, coupled with lockdown. With all the spring flowers blooming, golden sunshine and birds singing, it makes a real difference to our spirits.
Normally with May approaching, there would be a May Fair arranged at the Golden Hill Community Garden, but obviously this year this cannot take place.
However, the garden is busy bursting back into life and the polytunnel is filling up with little seedlings, so Lucy Mitchell, the garden’s Community Project Worker, is organising a socially distanced plant sale instead; this will take place on Saturday 8th May, 12-3pm.
There will be a lovely range of vegetable and flower seedlings, plus herbs and lots of tough slug-proof perennial flowers; these will be ideal for those who don’t have gardens or who lack much garden space, but instead have a sunny window sill for their seeds to sprout.
And, plants also make lovely gifts for friends and family!
If you would like to come to the plant sale at Golden Hill Community Garden on 8th May, you can find the garden on Monk Road, BS7, behind the prison. All are welcome along.
