Leabank Square gets growing
On Sunday, the green-fingered residents of Leabank Square got busy planting up hundreds of pots with wildflower and woodland seeds as part of the meadow's growing scheme.
Their amazing effort means we'll have loads of new plants to add in autumn, so there'll be a feast for the bees and birds in 2012. And the pots are completely biodegradable, so we can plant them straight into the grass later.
The group planted Betony, Agrimony and Cowslip (which our honey-making friends will enjoy), and teasels (which will attract lots of small birds).
A huge thank you to Leabank Square - and to The Hairy Pot Plant Company for the incredible pots!
