Above is the 'before shot' of the planters in Wilson Street, however if you were passing today you'll know that they already look a lot better than the picture seen here. I spent the afternoon weeding and clearing out the rubbish. I was joined by a passer by who did most of the pruning and provided us with a much needed bag of daffodil bulbs.
I have put in twelve lavender plants, tulip bulbs, Field Poppy, Scabious and Nigella seeds. On Saturday I'll be adding more daffodil bulbs, some poached egg seeds and more lavender.
I have some Love-Lies-Bleeding seeds which won't be going in until next spring possibly joined by some Petunias and red Sunflowers.
Thanks to the chap who helped, the chap who came bearing gifts and everyone who stopped to offer words of encouragement. It's all very much appreciated and I hope you'll be equally appreciative of our efforts over the coming months.
I'll pop up an 'after' shot over the weekend to let you all see the finished result.
