On a very cold day in December the Belle Isle & Middleton in Bloom team met up with Parks and Countryside along with Aidan and Casie, to plant Bulbs in three areas in Winrose Avenue.
I must say although cold, not as cold as two weeks before when we planted trees.
The spring bulbs (two large sacks) were donated by Parks and Countryside, Holbeck Depot. Thank you very much for that. They also provided the spades for us to do our handiwork.
The raised beds where a lot of shrubs had already been planted, is where we dug shallow trenches and the spring daffodil bulbs were planted. Just deep enough for the frost not to get to them, but not too deep as would have problems growing. So in a few months’ time will be awash with colour.
Brings back memories, when I had a garden where I used to live and planted spring and autumn bulbs.
I often wish been able to stay in Middleton, lovely area overlooking Park, but was not to be.
Also I remember last year that Spring Bulbs coming up through the grass verges near me and Middleton Ring Road. No sign of these yet, last year was out in November. Hmm.
