Bearpit Work Party!!

We still have lots of planting to do in the Bearpit Garden and that will begin at this work party, where we will be adding arches to grow hops and vines across as well as planting Japanese Quince and roses along the walls of the space and creating a wire framework for them. We’ll also be rebuilding some planters and painting them and sowing seeds in order that we have perennial meadows this year under the trees!!

We will be joined by Bristol University’s horticultural team for the day and everyone is welcome to really kickstart the exciting year of gardening we have planned for the Bearpit!!

Inevitably there will also be some weeding and work to do in the main part of the garden too!!

All are welcome, bring gloves if you have them and make sure you have sturdy, and waterproof, shoes or boots.
