Constantine Cornwall

Cottage Garden Society update

Peter Wilson, Chair

As 2021 starts with some frosty mornings and a new national lockdown in place, very little has changed within the Constantine garden society. We are still unsure when any meetings may be permitted and also any decisions regarding the summer show. What we can decide upon is that for those living within Constantine, we will have the front garden Class 9b competition for judg- ing in July. So please get your planning heads on ready for for planting ideas.

January is a great time for garden tidying and preparation, I personally have built two new raised beds and am filling these with rotted horse manure and compost ready for early plantings, when the ground warms up. February will see early seed sowing and various root cuttings being taken.

As Covid continues, please keep your-selves safe, let’s hope the vaccine is rolled out as quickly as the Government says and we can resume normality by the summer or Autumn.
