2021 – Summer Planting

millstone-and-trough-2020

In 2020 due to the early lockdown restrictions our plant order that was to be delivered in May was cancelled in April. We did manage to plant a much reduced planting scheme which did perform well aided by a quite a lot of rain during the summer.

The planting plan for 2020 has been carried over from 2020 albeit with with a few changes due to plant availability. This year we are ordering our plants from Crewe Road Nursery as Bromac our previous supplier is no longer trading due to the sad death of Terry, the owner and plantsman..

Due to the need for improved sustainability and the need to ensure our costs don't exceed our revenue we have decided that we will:

  • reduce the number of hanging baskets around the village, from 41 to 24 by focussing on the village centre locations. This reduces costs and greatly reduces the watering effort of volunteers
  • add the 5 new troughs at the front of the methodist chapel to the existing 13 troughs for summer and winter planting
  • change the bed at the Tollgate road sign to a low maintenance Alpine flower bed
  • change the 2 annual planting beds plant at the Lord Combermere pub to low maintenance sensory flower beds
  • all other planting remains unchanged
  • continue with replacement of rotten wooden barrel planters

The plants for 2021 are:

Surfina Sky Blue
Begonia illumination lemon
Calibrachoa shades of Blue
Calibachoa Can can Sunlight
Bacopa abunda colossal blue
Bacopa abunda colossal White
Lysimachia midnight sun
Verbena Obsession twister purple
