The pots of hyacinths and snowdrops that were on the shingle have now been replaced with pots of colour - or hopefully they will be as the season progresses. The fernery is really taking shape now with the tree fern looking stunning as its fronds unfurl. The hostas are also looking good and we have found that the sheeps wool pellets are excellent at repelling the slugs and snails. They also look far better than blue slug pellets and they are far more environmentally friendly. they smell of sheep when you open the packet but, once around the plants, the smell dissipates... not that I mind the smell of sheep!
So, we will try again this month to start on Emily's garden although the side garden also needs tidying. The hanging baskets with hanging begonias are planted and up, the roses are beginning to look good and the Peace Garden is starting to mature. Let's hope that it all gives the desired effect of peace and tranquillity and inspires prayer and contemplation.
If we are around in the garden, join us for a cup of tea.
The garden around the church has been registered with the Quiet Garden Movement.
It is available for use by the local community for quiet reflection throughout the year but we would ask that you respect the privacy of our neighbours.
To find out more about Quiet Gardens, visit the Quiet Garden website at www.quietgarden.org
If you would like Rev. Jean Andrews to lead you through a Quiet Hour, which is the equivalent of Christian Mindfulness, Morning or Day then please contact her using the contact details above. However, the garden is not really in use for this at the moment.
