Our volunteers are working hard to cultivate a selection of plants to help us generate much needed income. We’ve raised £1200 over the last 3 months and we still have lots of plants for sale. Please bring the correct change as well as bags to transport your plants. Plants will be available to buy every Monday & Friday, 1-2pm. Prices range from £1 upwards.
In July we have trays of viola, corn flowers, tomatoes, different herbs as well as indoor succulents.
Calendula is an annual flowering herb that doesn’t require special care and is very easy to regrow from seeds. Like most herbs, calendula needs little or no maintenance. The roots easily adapt to the available space and can be grown in containers or beds. Average well-drained soil, full sun or shady conditions are equally good if plants are watered only occasionally.Every part of the plant can be useful in many ways. It is said to stimulate the immune system and is used as an ingredient in many cosmetic products. Calendula flowers and leaves can be dried and stored for later use. In the garden, calendula can distract aphids from other valuable plants.
Nasturtium is an extremely versatile summer flower that is perfect for lightening up edges and for growing in hanging containers and baskets. It can be used to decorate fences and walls. Nasturtiums have a long flowering period from summer to the first strong frosts in autumn and have a nice peppery taste if you mix the leaves in your salad.
