Wildflower sowing at Richmond Nantwich

23 April 2012

Despite typical April Showers, residents from Richmond Village Nantwich welcomed the help of a handful of young keen gardeners from Stapeley Broad Lane Primary this week, to sow the seeds for Wildflowers in the Woodlands atRichmondVillage.


This years RHS scheme to sow Wildflowers for the future was helped along enthusiastically by both residents and children alike. The ground was prepared previously by Richmond’s Gary Lawton- who created four patches of land in the Woodlands in the shape of a square, circle, triangle and diamond. Doug Butterill of the Nantwich In Bloom committee was on hand to make sure all went smoothly. The flowers will now be monitored to see which patch grows the most and quickest and the children will be returning in a couple of months to see the outcome of their plot.


Caroline Middleton of Stapeley Broad Lane Primary School said- “It was lovely to see the children working closely with the residents- and the Afternoon Tea that was served after all the hard work was delicious and well worth the efforts of the day”
