Snowdrop Bulbs In

At one point today it looked like we were running a Time Team episode with Tony Robinson. We literally had trenches everywhere.

We planted the bulbs in the trenches and then sieved the earth back using a griddle. This will hopefully give the bulbs the best chance to settle and grow. I have made a commitment to add 1,000 bulbs every year to this area, and also the existing bulbs should start to spread naturally.

What I am hoping over time is that it becomes a real “go to” when the whole area is covered in a white carpet of snowdrops. Imagine how uplifting that will be in the depths of winter, and then when the snowdrops have gone over, the same thing again with English bluebells.

Really good to set up our basecamp and shelter from the rain whilst enjoying a coffee and macaroon.

It’s all just a bit of fun, a great way to meet neighbours and have that warm fuzzy feeling that we are contributing to the local area.

Also, I have added all the access points to the map, if you click on the map tab above you will see the best places to get on and off. It is the purple markers with a walking person symbol. This should help with people planning walks. We are getting sign posts up at some point, but at the moment we need to catch up on all the lost time this year.

Well, that is it for this week. Anyone who wants to join in please do come along. You can get stuck in, or just do a little bit of a litter-pick and snipping back, if you want to sound us out and see if it’s for you.
