Spring is a time to ring the changes at Ashfield Gardens. Our Stourbridge community garden is gearing up for the warmer weather with lots of exciting plans. The team have been digging over the earth to prepare for the new pumpkin and strawberry patches.
“We’re making the pumpkin and strawberry patches twice as big this year as last,” says Jenny. “This should attract more members of the public to come and visit.”
Supersize Pumpkins this autumn!
The extra growing space will certainly come in handy. Jenny and the team are planning to plant 100 pumpkin seeds – including some of the famous ‘Dill’s Atlantic Giant’ variety which can reach a spectacular size.
The pigs will be getting a new home this year too, as the team have been working hard over winter to clear an overgrown area to create a new enclosure. And with a new willow dome in the woodland, we’ll be able to welcome younger people to our new Forest School sessions too.
