Holts Lane Working Party

It was noted that gaps are appearing in places. Liz has seen Paul Steed and he has given us some Lavender and Fuchsias, some of which have been used at the community Garden.


These have not been successful at the Community Garden so we will have to see how these go at Holts Lane

Theme - Growing for Gold

Liz has some sunflowers growing at home and the judges would like to see some acknowledgement towards the growing for gold theme. The sunflowers will continue to grow and it would be a good idea to buy some marigolds for the Community Garden and Holts Lane.
