Meeting 12th March 2018

Jane attended Witney in Bloom meeting. Our new beds are now ready, dug over & manured. The council will give us bedding plants. Brenda will find out what sort. They will also mount a water butt.

Long side bed approx. 8 metres long & north facing: Chard, beetroot, chilli peppers, strawberries. Also lavender, trailing rosemary & curry plants. Christine has a possible bay tree that would look good in the corner in front of the water butt.

The big bed will need approx. 12 stepping stones to facilitate weeding etc Runner beans & French climbing beans to go along the wall. Canes needed. Groups of sunflowers (Jane), sweat peas (Brenda) & dwarf beans (Caroline), Helen has a blackcurrant bush for the middle, chard & lettuce (Christine). Brenda has sown peas & broad beans & tomatoes, rhubarb in shady corner, camomile along the edge. Raddish & carrots to be sown directly.

The possibility of meeting alternate weeks during the summer was raised.
