Spectacular Springs Ahead for Memorial Garden

Spectacular Springs Ahead for Memorial Garden
Taylors Bulbs at Chelsea Flower Show

Through our membership of the Thames Landscape Strategy’s Community Advisory Group, the HWA has been offered hundreds of free flowering bulbs for use in a public garden.

The bulbs are generously donated by the prestigious Lincolnshire family firm Taylors Bulbs, in partnership with the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association. The bulbs are made available totally free of charge to amenity groups such as us across all London Boroughs.

Chris Drayson, honorary President of the HWA, keeps a watchful eye on the Memorial Gardens throughout the year and successfully campaigned for their improvement several years ago. He submitted our application and we were successful in being given “bags and bags” of Galanthus, Alliums, Margaritas and Scillas.

Together with Ronnie Findlay, Chris has planted all the bulbs in clumps around the Memorial Gardens. We’re not certain whether they’ll come up this year, but they are sure to provide a splendid display in future.

Many thanks to Taylors Bulbs and the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association.
