Big Bulb Plant comes into bloom

We’re delighted to share a couple of recent photos of the quarry grove alongside Shirehampton Road, the site of October’s Big Bulb Plant. The daffodils volunteers planted have bloomed early and were in full flower last week when a rare day of sun showcased them to full effect. The impact has been pretty incredible, particularly when seen from passing vehicles on the road. A big thank you to everyone who helped out and made this such a success!

Just last year this was engulfed in brambles and the trees were unnoticeable.

Gold rewards!

For all the hard work volunteers put in at the end of last year to clear the area below the viewing terrace I don’t think anyone could quite have predicted such a huge reward in the THOUSANDS of daffodils that have exploded into life this spring. Swathes of these were completely engulfed last year, but this year they are about to put on a real show! Just last September this was the scene: http://www.kwag.org.uk/gallery/jan-18th-2014-2/sept-2013-return-to-the-viewing-terrace/

We recommend next weekend as being the best time to see the whole slope alight with them!
