Sustainable beds

The Village Trust has ‘adopted’, for improvement and maintenance four raised beds in the village centre.



The bed in the triangle has been planted with herbaceous plants and bulbs, whilst the bed opposite Rumi’s now has perennial shrubs and climbers.  The pansies there will be replaced with bulbs after flowering.



The Sunflower seeds sown in the bed opposite the Golden Flower have now germinated.  When in flower there should be a mass of golden yellow, to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of RHS Britain in Bloom.



Volunteers will be planting a golden theme in the tubs and troughs this weekend, which will hopefully be in full bloom when the Northumbria in Bloom summer judging takes place on 21 July.

    Hello from Trish. I live on Oley Meadows and I would like you to know that I really appreciate all of the planting that the Trust has organised. The village has been transformed and it is a joy to drive or walk through. So a BIG thank you from me. I am sure the judges can not fail to be impressed. Good luck.
