Planting the Courtyard Garden

Over the last fortnight plants have been arriving at the library, donated in response to our appeal. On Saturday a good number of people turned up to plant out sedum, verbena, primroses, currants, gooseberries a whole range of mints and lavenders. The beds around the edge of the garden are dedicated to more permanent, perennial, planting (fruit bushes and trees, herbs and so on) the central bed will change fairly regularly but is going to start off show-casing bee and butterfly plants – many of which are listed as part of our Plants for Bees project.

Most of the hard landscaping work is now complete, bird and bat boxes are up, trellis secured and the benches will be fastened to the walls this week – everything appears to be on target for the Grand Opening on the 19th!
