Volunteers are welcome to join Friends of Millhouses Park on Saturday 14 May 10-2pm. We will be digging, weeding, sowing wild flowers seeds and planting herbs in the Sensory Garden between the tennis courts and the bowling green. Tools and gloves can be supplied but better to bring your own, particularly forks. Children very welcome.
The sensory garden and herbaceous borders look fantastic at the moment. If your in the park make sure you stop by to see them at their best! Thanks to the park staff and volunteer gardeners, and Pictorial Meadows and Ferndale Garden Centre for the donations of seeds and plants.
100 new plants have been planted into the sensory garden, including purple sage, geranium, knautia, geum and lavender. The chocolate vine growing over the arch looks and smells wonderful!
