Some of the jobs undertaken by the gardening team in January included:

1 Cutting back of perennials and weeding in the garden and around the visitor centre

2 Spreading of our homemade compost on beds in the greenhouse garden

3 Planting bulbs, violets and primroses in the wildlife garden

4 Sowing vegetable seeds in the greenhouse

5 Transplanting a young native hedge from the side of the access lane to along the extended garden boundary

The STH project aims to provide a “green experience” for adults with mild learning disabilities and/or mental health issues, as well as those who may feel lonely or cut off from society. It is well documented that working with and in a horticultural environment is both relaxing and nurturing and we are delighted to have Sculthorpe’s STH team thriving at the reserve.
