Big Bulb Plant! October 2014

This was the second year that KWAG have run the Big Bulb Plant! at Kings Weston; a community event encouraging everyone to get out and help plant native species of wild flowers around the estate. This year we had a huge quantity of bulbs, about 12,000 of them! These photos record the planting of them which involved areas around the Echo. The woodlands were planted with bluebells and snowdrops, whilst the banks overlooking Shirehampton Road below the viewing terrace were planted with daffodils and crocus.

Unusually for a working party event we have less to show for our efforts than when we started, but hopefully our reward will come in spring next year, and the displays grow further as they establish over the following years.
