The new 'Betty' hostas arrived in time for the scattering of Betty Gibson's ashes in the garden but they are quite small. We are hoping that they will grow and become larger plants as we had bought quite a large coontainer for them.
The gardens are surviving now in this heatwave/drought rather than flourishing. It has made us think about future planting that will need less watering but that can still be as attractive as English gardens have always been. The lavender which we reduced last year due to much of it being old and woody, has thrived and the bees have loved it. There is much more insect life in the garden than when we started but we have't seen as many cinnabar moths as we have in the past. Is this due to less ragwort being around or the change in our planting?
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.
Wednesdays at 8.15pm - please phone church secretary to confirm venue.
This will restart in September. Details to follow but we will be studying the Epistle to the Romans.
