Community Gardens

Our wildlife garden is open!
This Community Garden is for the use of the whole Channels community, and if the project is successful the we will look to set up more gardens across the wider development in the future and of course as the final phases of Channels are completed, we will look to see what is possible across those areas.

Please come and have a look at the spring flowers. There are daffodils, grape hyacinths, snake heads , wild primroses and hellebores.

Our log pile makes a good home for the creepy crawlies!

Thank you to the volunteers that have prepared the bed for the flower seed. With some of the grant money received we have bought “Wildlife seed mixture rainbow garden and summer sunshine”. These will be sown shortly and the pack says we will have flowers all summer long, so fingers crossed.

From April we will be sowing seeds in pots, and then once they have germinated, the pots can be taken from the garden and looked after. Once the roots are showing through the bottom, please bring back to the community garden and either plant in the bed, or leave them ready for volunteers to plant. So far we have the following seeds, ready to sow.

  1. Love in the mist
  2. Flanders Poppy
  3. Corn Marigold
  4. Borage
  5. Snap dragon
  6. Calendula
  7. Cosmos

What are your thoughts on the community garden and do you have any ideas for the next few months? Of course whatever we do over the coming months will need to comply with COVID rules and guidance but all ideas are still encouraged; we may just need to schedule some developments for later in the year.

If you are interested in getting involved, please fill in the form below and Carroll will be in touch!
