Spring Planting Day 2016 a Great Success

Volunteers both young and not-so-young turned out on Saturday 2nd April to scatter wild flower seeds on freshly prepared flower beds and to plant spring bulbs along the cliff path.

Youngsters scatter wild flower seeds in Alexandra Park.

A selection of wild flower seeds were provided by BANES, and Alexandra Park Friends provided drinks, home-made cakes and biscuits for the volunteers.

Bulb planting along the cliff path.

Along the cliff path, we planted:

208 Bluebell plugs
416 Wild Garlic plugs
30 Primrose plants
100 Cyclamen Hederifolium.

More will be planted in the autumn, so by next spring the cliff path should be transformed!

Many thanks to BANES for providing all the plants, and to Paul Pearce for masterminding it all (and for making all the holes for us to pop the plugs into).
