It’s been a busy year in the gardens at Ifield. Since March we’ve planted over 20,000 plants across more than 300 varieties. We’ve built a website, created over 100 signs for the benches and made more than 300 hanging baskets to order. The people we support have never worked so hard or well together. And it doesn’t end there. For the first time we are staying open all year, which means we now have a wide range of winter plants in stock.
To give everyone a break from all the planting we are now making our own Christmas wreaths and winter planters, see below for some examples.
Willow Wreaths £15, round wreaths £10
We are now gearing up for the winter maintenance when we hope to be able to rebuild as many of the 120 benches in the greenhouse as possible. Then we’ll be back to planting up in mid-February when the first of the spring bedding plants arrive. We also hope to be having some decorative bowls of spring bulbs available for an early burst of colour.
A big thank you to everyone has been along to support us with your custom, we hope to see you all again soon.
Best wishes for the coming season.
The Gardens Team.
