7000 new bulbs planted

Saturday saw us return with our Big Bulb Plant and we planted over 7000 bulbs around the estate. 4000 bluebell bulbs were planted around the concrete steps beside the South Walk, with the remainder of daffodils planted between the boulders along Shirehampton Road, and natives along the wood-line above.Hopefully next spring will bring the rewards for our efforts.

Thanks to Bob Pitchford for providing us with photos of the event. 10thOct2015 1  10thOct2015 210thOct2015 3 10thOct2015 13 10thOct2015 4

Annual Big Bulb Plant October 10th

After the success of last two years Big Bulb Plant we are running it again this year, but with THOUSANDS MORE BULBS! The Big Bulb plant is a free, family-friendly event where you can get involved in one of our easier going working party events. The event is completely free with all the native wild flower bulbs provided!

This year we have a great mix of natives all ready to be slipped in the ground in areas around the Echo and down the South Walk. The event will run on Saturday 10th October,  between 10:30am and 3:30pm and we’d love to see you there. Please bring a spade if you have one, but gloves and some tools will be provided.
