‘Greening Grey Britain’ is one of the themes of Britain in Bloom this year.
We’ve been doing just that with the Castleton Wildflower Garden. This was once a derelict plot of land surrounding an electricity sub-station which we have been converting into a bee and butterfly garden.
Neighbours William and Richard were hard at work today clearing up the overgrowth and weeds left over from last year:
Watch this space you insects!
On 26 March we had a ‘Spring Planting Day’. Volunteers turned up to help the Castle Gardens staff perk up the containers around the town with spring flowers.
Here’s what was happening at the plot at the corner of Bristol Road:
This is a very visible site on one of the main routes into Sherborne.
The violas going into these containers will be very pleasing for motorists to view as they come into town.
This website is honoured to have twice won the coveted Barry Cruse Trophy for 'Best Website' in the South West in Bloom regional competition.
We were awarded the trophy in 2010 and 2013.
