PREPARATION FOR RUSHALL GARDEN OPEN DAY Sunday on 13 June 2010
The next 15 weeks means lots of work for me and my team of Steve and Jordan, in eager anticipation of this years Garden Open Day. Any pots spare in your garden ? please let me have them as we hopefully still have enough time for seeds to germinate and evolve into my planned saleable pot plants to be sold on he day.
I’m planning, weather allowing, hollyhocks, dogwood, foxgloves, and the very successful locally annual lavatera.
The overwintered plants look like they re in need of some relief and I will re-pot them into fresh compost. You can almost hear the plants sighing in pleasure as they are relieved of their tired, frozen too often and too wet bases. I expect some thanks for this tiny investment in terms of their growth and future flowering.
What do you reckon ? Will they respond ?
COMMUNITY TEAMWORK FO RUSHALL GARDEN OPEN DAY Sunday 13 June 2010
I put my heart into it, persuading friends to do a little something to increase interest or better to raise more money which is a long way from some who go away the weekend of GARDEN
OPEN DAY 130609. .
This year, watch out friends, I’m on the scrounge for flower pots. Anyone got any spare 1 litre or less? . I’m going to a “one price fits all “ marketing strategy. If my neighbours contribute perennials dug up from their too dense gardens or over production of their own spring planting, it all can be sold at my “100% for the church” ,one-day-only plant sale.
I am busy trying to convince friends to bring horses for riding or unusual animals to pet. I’m also attempting to con friends up for a coffee on that day if they drive something unusual, interesting and especially appropriate for boys chat.
Wish me luck.
