Coming up | our busiest week

Contact details: http://www.facebook.com/wallaseyvillagebloom | twitter: @WVinbloom

Next week is one of the busiest weeks of the year as we’re in the process of preparing our planters and barrels for summer planting – so we’re emptying and re-lining all planters in the village.  So, if you see empty planters don’t be alarmed!

So if you can help please contact us using the details at the top.  #thankyou

Some of the team have already started work at Wallasey Village Library today.  We have relined the mangers and planted up with geraniums and a variety of begonia.  We have also used the winter plants, heuchera and some of the primula to fill out the borders and added new lavender plants.  It’s being mulched with bark chippings.

 

Bloom Hour!

To keep our village blooming throughout the summer, we are holding a dedicated ‘BLOOM HOUR’ every Tuesday, meeting at 6:00pm outside St Nicholas Church on Bayswater Road.

Any help would be really appreciated – you don’t have to be a professional gardener, just have an interest in gardening.  So come along and meet the Bloomers you’ll be sure of a great welcome!

‘BLOOM HOUR’ last night was spent planting gorgeous bacopa and heuchera in the planter on the approach road.  Then lots of weeding and edging at Mike’s Circle to complete our regular Tuesday evening’s work.

A lovely sight for drivers on their way to work tomorrow morning!

Mike’s Circle

Rain stopped weeding, pruning and planting on Saturday morning but Sunday was clear and bright and we were finally able to carry out a tidy up of Mike’s Circle (In front of St Nicholas’ Church, on Bayswater Road).  Finally we were able to plant quite a few primulas – beautiful jewel colours, which certainly brightens up the area.

It was a busy few hours but well worth it.  Thank you to the gentleman who donated and to those people out walking who stopped to chat.

We look as colourful as the flowers in our hi-viz jackets!

Do you shop in Tesco?

Can you help us?

Every time you shop in Tesco at Bidston Moss, until 30th April please can you put your tokens in the ‘WVIB’ slot.  If we manage to get the most tokens, we will then be eligible for money towards the “Floral Trail” which we are hoping to implement later this year.

We hope you can help!

Third time lucky …

It was a question of third time lucky!  We’ve had to rearrange our planting programme due to the snow and general bad weather.  But finally this morning we were out early and with volunteers to make the Village look bloomin’ beautiful and colourful with lots of primulas.  A big thanks to Stollies Café for providing us with hot drinks to keep out the cold.  Quite a few local businesses ‘sponsor a planter’ and we thank them and our volunteers for their continued support.

Our next meeting will be Tuesday night when we’ll be discussing our summer planting programme, if you have any thoughts or suggestions please let us know.

 

We hope you like the finished planters.
