Autumn activities

Updated: Mar 1, 2023

Whilst nature's been preparing for its annual rest its been all action here at The Garden Gate.

  • The energetic removal of a concrete ramp outside our thriving Arts Hut has greatly improved disabled access.

  • Uneven paving in the large polytunnel has finally been relaid.

  • An unruly mountain of plant pots and trays has been sifted through and sorted out for ease of use.

  • The ailing Living Wall along one side of the weather station railings has been dismantled in preparation for an evolving new look inspired by Fritz Lang's Metropolis.

  • Skips and rubbish bags have been filled and sent packing, and an enormous bonfire topped off with browning asparagus fern burnt on the fifth - clearing space for fresh energy, new ideas and regrowth.

  • Our long wooden feasting tables and benches have been oiled and stored away until next year.

  • An area of our vegetable beds has been put to sleep beneath a huge plastic sheet decoratively pinned down by wooden pallets and birch tree offcuts.

  • On the growing front, elephant garlic and broad beans have been sown and containers of tulip bulbs topped off with wallflowers, daisies and pansies propagated from seed.

  • And finally, we gratefully received the kind donation of a collection of cacti.

Big thanks to Nick for this report and photos of our recent activities.
