Plants used in the Townhead Bed
We decided earlier this year to plant The Townhead Bed (at the junction of Polnoon Street and Montgomery Street) with a good percentage of permanent planting.
Some of the perennial plants included in the scheme are listed below.
*RHS Award of Garden Merit
The cup symbol on a plant's label shows that the Royal Horticultural Society has given a seal of approval that the plant performs reliably in the garden.
*Perfect for Pollinators
A bee symbol on a plant's label easily shows this initiative that helps gardeners identify plants which encourage wild bees and pollinating insects back into the garden.
Gardening Tips for August
If you used a slow release fertiliser in your baskets and pots earlier in the year it is probably now running out. A weekly feed and regular dead heading should keep your containers looking good. Tomato plant food is just as effective as some of the more expensive feeds and will keep your flowers blooming.
