Willow Weaving Workshop

Thanks to Scotland’s Climate Festival Seed Fund Grant we can run this Willow Weaving Workshop on 26 March. Please see poster for details and let our secretary, (secretary@hopetouncrescentgarden.org.uk), know if you would like to participate for the morning, afternoon or all day.

This is open to non members. Numbers will be limited for this free event, (donations welcomed!),  but we will try and accommodate as many participants as possible.

New additions to the garden

Many thanks to George Lucasz for his help in planting two new apple trees in the garden. Thanks also to Jenny and Graham for their efforts on Saturday. We will be putting up espalier wires to train the branches soon. The trees are James Grieve and Cutler Grieve species. The apples were cultivated by James Grieve in his nursery at Redbraes very close by on Broughton Road. We are looking forward to munching on these!

We also transplanted two cherry blossom trees which were encroaching too close to the ground floor flats. All in all, a good day’s work.
