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.

Park ablaze with daffodils

As you’ll be able to see from the photographs, March has been ablaze with daffodils across the estate. The Circle and ancient lime avenue planting continue to put on great shows, and the new planting along the new lime avenue has started off well. This is despite some later vandalism, where flower heads in the two bays closest to Kings Weston house were plucked off. Otherwise, things have passed off without previous large scale thefts that marred the display last year. Some late flower daffodils are still to flower along the ancient lime avenue, so there’ll still be something to see as April marches on.
