Thursday – Helping the Parish Council to increase the spring floral displays. We will be planting 1,500 bulbs but until we get there, not sure exactly where. If it is in the grass verges, we will lift the turf, plant the bulbs then replace the turf.
We have planted many bulbs in the past, including a few thousand in Broadbridge Heath, and (usually*) have been rewarded by a lovely display in spring and appreciated by passers-by.
Meeting Point: The car park of the Shelley Arms pub, in Old Guildford Road.
*Usually*: one infamous occasion, many members laboured all morning to plant 3,500 crocus bulbs but only very few bloomed. It is possible that they had been incorrectly stored in the weeks leading up to our task. This time, the bulbs are freshly bought and should ‘perform’ as required.
