Train Station Gardens

Posted: 02/02/2013 at 12:38

Hello Kathy

We started Sholing station in September, there is a lot of people in your group of volunteers ours here only has 2 or 3 sometimes not many - but after a while of clearing the garden area that was unused for a long time before we started gardening, South West trains did a shrubbery cut back which helped with the brambles, still had to do a lot of digging and gardening that had to be done but we can see lots of bulb heads popping up flowers will be arriving.

 Here's some daffodils popping up and a foxglove.

It will be good when we get to see all our efforts we put in. We still have lots of weeding to do and will enjoy the rewards of the plants in flower and the time gardening as well. We also have our own garden to keep enjoying as well. 

Interesting video link - gardening does get some places colourful, makes spaces look better don't you think?

What a good lot of volunteering everyone does - so well done all.

Hello Catherine

Try this link below, we are swapping seeds here online if you want to join in with us you can. I thought that the magazine was going to be like that as well but just buy seeds and have help instead which is nice as well.

Composting and wormery

Posted: 30/01/2013 at 19:34

Managed to add another layer to my wormery now, when I looked in the bottom layer seeds were growing don't know what they are - have now moved to another part of garden, the compost must be good for seeds to be growing I guess.

How's your compost heap going?

I've posted your seeds as well Sam should be with you soon.

Have to keep going with all this seed swapping great way of getting seeds you have not tried before or help with how to grow them from someone else that has before.

Enjoying swapping so far, will swap more if anyone wants to.

Train Station Gardens

Hello all

Thanks Alan4711  - South West Trains only come through this station as on small line but good thought we buy plants/ seeds and get our money back from the three river rail company so we don't pay for it only in time and effort.

Been busy this week clearing away a lot of leaves and rubbish to create a wild-flower area behind a shelter and weeding in the main raised flower bed have now got a water bucket up there as well to help with the flower bed picture below of cleared area.

What do you think?

Seeds are up

Hey more seeds up calendula popped up today I sowed them just under 2 weeks ago, not done them this early before but worth it when you see the seeds growing.

Getting a little carried away...

I do run out of space in my plastic greenhouses and some times end up using the house, more when you end up potting on the seedlings to bigger pots/ cells or even just because I want to sow more seeds.

I do sometimes go for offers off emails or from garden mags ocatalogue - good for seeds but sometimes plants are only small
