The year feels as if it is flying by. Being my first summer at the Serpentine, I’m amazed with each passing week just how much the garden changes. Growing Well is already into week 5 of their programme, filling the first layers of their insect hotel with logs and terracotta while also doing some heavy lifting, tidying up pallets from the wildlife area. The large greenhouse has been netted for extra shade and cleared of all non growing seedlings.
Dahlias, coneflowers, honesty and lupins have all been potted up prepared for next Saturday at the Rotary Fair. We have a varied stock of flowers, plants, seeds, teas and other goodies on offer so don’t forget to stop by and say hello. Chilli peppers, cucumbers, squash. basil, melon, runner beans and leaks have all been planted out and doing well in their beds.

The week started on the bank holiday but there was no time to relax. The Growing Well group started the week getting stuck into the new insect hotel, sowing flowers and making compost. As the warm weather continues there has been much work with watering and weeding.
