Report from One Planet Bruton following this event:

“We had I think 25 people turn up, most of whom got stuck in and were a real help (the one who was still in a pushchair was excused!)  As a result of this brilliant support we have planted about 3,000 native daffodils, mostly around the outside of the Church yard, but also some in the memorial garden and ‘Planting for Pollinators’ patch (both near Man on Bench). We have also weeded Elliots Barton, the Packhorse Bridge, and the short stretch of wall between the Packhorse Bridge and the bins by the picnic area. The Church steps didn’t need weeding.

The bulbs are small and we have been warned that they are unlikely to flower in the coming spring. They’ve also gone in rather late, but hopefully they’ll do well in future years.

I think we should all feel heartened that even with temperatures which were very low (it was 0c) we had a great crowd of enthusiastic volunteers who wanted to contribute positively towards our town”.
