Thanks to a generous grant from the Co-op and our own fundraising efforts we have a magnificent £550 to spend on replanting Snuff Mills garden. Bristol City Council will match every pound we raise which means we have a total of £1100 to spend on new plants to really return the garden back to its former glory.
The garden used to be a much loved feature of Snuff Mills, alive with bulbs in Spring and full of colourful bedding plants in the Summer. These days its hard for the Council to put in as much effort in to tending its flower beds, so we are going to create a community garden instead.
Last year we cleared away lots of overgrown areas and even planted a few flowers to cheer the garden up. This year you can expect to see many more plants and colourful flowers. There will be regular gardening days throughout the year and a grand garden planting weekend in May. See the what's on section on the right hand side of this blog. We hope you'll join us for some fresh air and help make Snuff Mills a lovely place for everyone to visit.
