Hay Festival

We are building a Wiggly Garden right in the middle of Hay Festival. It includes a rain garden, a veggie patch, wildflower meadow, some willow structures and.... 100 planted up Joules wellies! Why not come along 21st - 31st May.

Here's what Rich has written about a little bit of it....

Apple tree graveyard!

Dead wood is essential to support many types of life, it also makes for a great feature as these intertwined apple trees demonstrate. If you take a close look you will notice an inundation of small bracket fungi growing from the trunks. Decomposers in their own right, fungi make a wonderful addition not only to the wealth of biodiversity in a garden but also the overall aesthetics. If you lifted the bark on these trees a host of scrambling millipedes, woodlice and centipedes could be seen making a break for cover. Invertebrates like these are food for birds and small mammals like shrews and even hedgehogs, if you get the inverts into your garden everything else will follow!

More later...
In our garden we will have a potter, and a gardener and various childrens workshops.
