Hedge Planting on 15th January

January 15 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Sophie & Ruth from the Southwark community garden team have arranged for some hedging whips to be delivered to our gardening group to plant a hedge around the new growing area by Royal Road, from 11:00am on Saturday 15th January.

Alan Scott from Complete Ecology will be coming along to help you all plant the new hedge this Saturday at 11am.  He has two spare spades so will bring these – he’s asked if you can bring all the spades you have and also a wheelbarrow for shifting woodchip mulch on to whips after planting.  Please wear sturdy shoes for digging.

They will seem small at first, but will grow quickly.

This should ensure that we have a nice green border around the new beds. The allotment boundary is around 50m so there should be around 270 whips in total, a mixed native hedge.  We had a quick look at the soil profile yesterday and it seems like a good loam to around 30cm. Some areas may be rubbly, but the TRA has a hammer drill if needed to break the ground.

All Brandon gardeners need to come along to this event to help out.

Please see some pictures of this event:
