Weekly Churchyard Update (13/10)

By Tim Hewitt, St Mary’s Head Gardener/ Community Gardener  The South Bed is looking ragged now, as the last standing plants continue to be taken out. The Japanese anemones, Cosmos, Symphyotrichum and Chrysanthemum still offer something. Elsewhere, the pot displays are on the cusp of being taken down or put away. This is their last […]

Weekly Churchyard Update (5/10)

By Tim Hewitt, St Mary’s Head Gardener/ Community Gardener Ongoing division, redistribution and propagation in the South Bed is the main work of the week.

Weekly Churchyard Update (21/9)

By Tim Hewitt, St Mary’s Head Gardener/ Community Gardener Little bits will be added to the new sand bed, but a lot of the planting is complete.

Churchyard Update (7/9)

By Tim Hewitt, St Mary’s Head Gardener/ Community Gardner While the new gravel bed has been widely (but not universally) admired, this week sees the arrival of a similar quantity of sand. This will be the top layer and will wash into the gaps in the gravel over time. As soon as this is down, […]

Churchyard Update (30/8)

By Tim Hewitt, St Mary’s Head Gardener/ Community Gardener   It is all about shifting material this week. The recycled brick, concrete and ceramic won’t have escaped your notice. Getting it on the new bed as a base is this week’s task, followed by a similar quantity of sand. Then we can start the dismantling […]
