Wild Weekend for Wales : Saturday 8 March @ Llangollen Community Garden 10 am – 3 pm

The event sponsored by Keep Wales Tidy will see groups all over Wales doing practical projects to help wildlife. This spring the main focus is on pollinators.

@ Llangollen Community Garden we will be:

Establishing our Coppice Area
  • Thinning the sapling trees, clearing bramble, coppicing some of the ash
  • Planting hazel
  • Under planting with snowdrops (and hopefully primroses).

Planting 2 Fruit Trees

  • Planting a plum and a damson. Food for the bees and us!
Planting Honeysuckles
  • Putting up wires to grow a honey suckle along the stone wall behind the social area
  • Putting up trellis and planting 2 honeysuckles to cover the metal fencing erected by DCC

Tidying up our existing Flower Beds

  • Our existing Bee Beds need some tlc after the winter
  • We will be planting some extra “bee” plants too, mostly from plant divisions from our own gardens

Log / Bug Piles

  • As an extra to our pollinator plans will will saw up some of the many branches in the garden
  • We want to create 1 or 2 smaller log piles in the children’s area suitable for future mini beast hunting
