Town Trail - Bog Plants go into the Ditch.

We had a hard working morning on the Town Trail yesterday, Monday, planting bog plants along the stretch of ditch between Bridge Street and Woodleigh Road. Many thanks to our lovely volunteers who, undaunted by the mud, finished preparing the ground and planting 250 plants. With the funding from Severn Trent, we are preparing an information board to explain what we've done and the plants we've used.

You won't notice much difference for a while as it will take some time for the plants to settle in and grow. Once they start flowering then they'll be obvious, although we'll need to keep an eye on the nettles so they don't swamp the bog plants.
