Purbrook Gardens

This month we will continue our wildlife garden project at Purbrook Gardens by planting a mixed native species hedge in front of the wall next to the Co-op and along the side facing Purbrook House.   

We will plant three rows of a variety of native species trees with hawthorn and blackthorn in the middle.  The objective is to create a dense hedge that will provide nesting habitat for birds, flowers giving nectar for insects, a food source and year-round colour.

We will also spread wood chips to suppress weeds and help to retain moisture in the soil.

Meet at Purbrook Gardens at 9.30am

Boots or stout shoes are advised.

We welcome new volunteers, so if you would like to join us please come along.  You do not need experience of conservation work and there is no obligation to attend every task.  Please refer to the FAQs or use the Contact Us form to request more information.
