Last month the Sculthorpe’s Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) team completed the hedge transplant job started in January despite having to bale out the trenches before planting. It was a very muddy job!!! They are hopeful that at least some of the plants will survive but the conditions were less than ideal. The team made a fantastic effort despite the hurdles they faced.

In the garden area more vegetable and flower seeds were sown and the team started to prick out seedlings ready for growing on. Their designated plot looked beautiful last year and hopes are high for another year full of colour!

In February the team also made bug hotels for the reserve’s wildlife garden. These structures will play a key part in encouraging an abundance of creepy crawlies in this area, which will help make Sculthorpe’s wildlife garden just that- wild! In addition to the hotels, progress was made on the folly wall in the wildlife garden. To round off February the team started to build a willow arbour in the wildlife garden.

The STH project provides 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.
