Wallasey Village lamp post cuffs

The cuffs on the lamp posts in Wallasey Village were looking a bit bedraggled, so a few of the Bloomers were out this morning emptying and replanting them with winter plants. Huge thanks to Neil for braving the ladders and to the lovely resident who gave us some water when we rang out. It took nearly two hours but was worth it especially with all the lovely comments from people out for a Sunday stroll.

Save the date!

Busy Bank Holiday weekend

All the Bloomers were out over the Bank Holiday weekend – albeit at different times and places.

Saturday afternoon saw us watering all the planters next to the roundabout at Leasowe Road, it was certainly very hot!

Sunday was a beautiful day for a spot of gardening and the team were out early at the Mediterranean area corner of Bayswater Road and Harrison Drive. Edging and weeding completed and the plants are loving the gravel beds that makes it less of a task for us to keep it tidy.

A quick tidy up at St Nicholas border and the boat and we’re pleased to say all areas are still giving us wonderful displays.

Finally, extra plants were added at the display at the approach road and after a good watering that completed our work for the weekend. Hope you enjoy the displays as much as we do!

 

Judgement Day!

Well the sun was certainly shining brightly for the judges visit today, we had good feedback from them and very positive comments.  We will now have to wait until October to see how we have done.

A big thank you to everyone for all your lovely comments and support, we hope you continue to enjoy the flowers around the village.

Countdown to RHS judging

The Bloomers are on high alert in the village – deadheading, watering, tidying for Friday at 4.30pm! We have been out this afternoon and had to purchase more plants to fill the gaps in some of the barrels and planters where plants have disappeared or seem to have “gone walkabout!”

Please can we ask our supporters to be vigilant on our behalf and let us know via our facebook page if they see any plants missing in the village – we would hate to be marked down just for the fact that some plants are not where they should be.
