And yes you read correctly above...great news!!...fairies have actually moved into the community garden. Theres only one door so far but ive heared a rumor on the ivy vine that there are more little folk moving in soon. If you visit the library pop out into the garden and see if you can spot the fairy door!
We have had a couple of additions since we produced our original list we now have Calendula, Ornimental 'drumstick' alliums and also Globe artichoke seeds...lots of them and it is the perfect time to sow them indoors now, its a fantastic perrenial to add to your growing space, favoured by the god Zeus apparently! There is some good info on germinating globe artichoke seeds here. If you would like some please get in touch and for the full list please see our seeds page.
