Reepham Primary School Wildlife Garden

Saturday, April 14, 2018 - 10:30

Kate Whitehead is starting an after school wildlife club at Reepham primary school after Easter. There is a beautiful wildlife garden but it needs a little bit of TLC to maximise its value to the school's children and to local wildlife. She is an ecologist and knows the basis for a wildlife friendly garden, but she is by no means a gardening expert. 

She is planning to run a work party on Saturday 14th April and was hoping some of our members might be interested in being involved, either providing her with some planting advice in advance, practical help on the day, or by helping her out by providing cuttings of suitable plants as the year progresses. 

 Kate is also on the look out for building materials, old drainpipes, pallets etc that they can build bug hotels and similar from.

A members request:- I used to have many flower pots, but since my garden has become so full I

have learnt not to buy new plants I have had no need of pots. But now I have no pots to put

new finds in the garden, or cuttings etc. etc. in for the annual plant sale.

Has anyone a glut they want rid of? Tina
