The great outdoors

By Whyteleafe Village Council

Despite the high heat of September, the new border plants in our community garden have delivered a sparkling display, thanks to the help of the Whyteleafe Community Hub Garden Group.

All the planning and planting has revitalised this public space with beautiful colour right through into autumn. In addition, the two benches have been refurbished and the paved areas jet-washed to provide two seating areas where visitors can sit and enjoy some time beneath the trees.

Ahead of winter, we plan to re-stock the flower beds with winter-flowering perennials and spring flowering bulbs to extend the garden’s appeal across the whole year. By the spring, the garden will have changed with the seasons. But we hope it will remain just as attractive, not only to people but also to greater numbers of insects, birds and other wildlife. So, feel free to visit, stop and take in the relative tranquillity of this ‘pocket park’ off Whyteleafe Hill at the corner with Hornchurch Hill.
