theWI Adderbury & District WI – This week’s Wild Flower Gardening at KHH and Adderbury Lakes

Posted by on Jul 14, 2017 in Reflections

Dear Members,

 

Team WI were once again at KHH with Grow Wild Seeds on, Thursday, 13th July for ground raking, new seedling check – they are really doing well and coming along nicely, followed by a good chat to two KHH visitors who, viewing KHH’s gardens, came upon our wild flower area and were most interested to hear all about our site, our link with Grow Wild of Kew Royal Botanic Gardens and our growing flowers. And then, thanks to Brian, head Volunteer Team leader, I was able to put down more stepping stones at the rear edge of our main bed, to enable seed sowing during our Wild Flower Walk on Thursday, 27th July.

Team WI also carried out a quick weeding session at Adderbury Lakes, on the main bed extension, which has been cleared of many thistles and re-seeded with wild flower seeds which, despite the thistles and other weeds, have still struggled to grow and survive. They should be looking really good for our Wild Flower Walk on Thursday, 27th July, Here’s pics of both sites – KHH and then Adderbury Lakes xxx
