Ashbury Planters Working Party

October 29, 2017 @ 10:00 - 13:00

STAGE 2: Working party for the planted space external to the railings of the Wixes Piece Play area — Sunday  October 29th 10.00 – 1.00

We really need lots of your help on this day. For this second stage of the work we will be:

  • digging up a large number of the shrubs on the side facing the Open Space and replanting some of these to the side facing the houses
  • digging out any deep rooted weeds and grass – so that this area can be grass seeded next April for its easier ongoing maintenance


Please bring with you: spade, digging fork, gloves and a flask or so of fluid/drinking sustenance!

Alongside the digging, we know there will be an excess of shrubs because there won’t be sufficient room for all in the replanting area. This excess will be available to you all to collect from the site from 11.00am, for a donation to the Open Space fund – (to be used to buy benches for example).   

The excess shrubs will include Spirea (pink flowered variety), Acuba, various varieties of Viburnums, small compact Hebe’s and some bush Roses. If collecting any shrubs or plants please bring a bucket or container for ease of carrying back to your garden
