Bulb Planting – January 23rd 2010

The Henbury & Brentry Transition Group acquired 1000 bulbs through the good offices of the Neighbourhood Partnership and in conjunction with Henbury Conservation Society mustered around 20 adults and children to plant them on the banks around the Ford on Henbury Road adjacent to the Salutation.

Work started at 11:00 and by 13:30 all 1000 bulbs had been planted thanks to the hard work of all present.
It remains to be seen what shows this year but we should have a really fine flowering next year.
Here is a link to a handful of  ‘action’ photos I took.
