We are having a change at the Town Garden (near the Library). We are making a potager garden which is a decorative way of growing vegetables. The term comes from an old French word meaning vegetables for the pot. Each four metre bed will have a home-made obelisk in the middle and once Spring arrives, we will planting up vegetable seeds and young plants together with a selection of beneficial flowering plants for pollinating insects. We will be planting up some of the existing raised beds with wild flower mixes. Photos >>
