Our latest Working Bee on Sunday, 24th August, 2014 mainly addressed weeds the in the park at the bottom of Gardenia Street. The primary target was Angled Onion weed – our notorious weed of the month in May. Unfortunately, numbers were down a little on usual.
Our working bee coordinator (Mary) reports that our weeders started at the edge and weeded inwards – work was slow and tedious but they did remove a rather lot of that very smelly weed. Neighbours will have very clear nostrils for a few days!
Committee member Jim gave a demo of our new pump and that led to planting 20 in-fill plants.
“Gardener’s knee pads” were also put to the test and given a tick of approval. Friend Ann demonstrated the best way to put them on – velcro on the outside!
