Keep up to date with everything gardening at the Brentwood Centre

Welcome to the Brentwood Centre garden blog. This is where you let you in on whats happening in our garden direct from our green fingered team and volunteers.

Our resident gardener Melvyn, has been looking after the garden in lockdown and wanted to keep you informed of just what he has been doing to ensure the garden is still thriving whilst our doors are closed. See what it has to say below.

                                                                                                                      This is what happens when lock down happens at the busiest time of the gardening year. Flower and vegetable seedlings moved outside and inside each day to protect from cool nights and hot sun and watered regularly to keep healthy.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

                                                                                                                                                                                 

                                                                                                                      The Brentwood Centre greenhouse, empty for now, but ready for cucumber, tomato, pepper and aubergine plants when we are allowed to return.    

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Many are finding solace in gardening during this period of time. Giving them hope now and for the future.

There's lots of good gardening advice available online especially from the Royal Horticultural Society.

Keep gardening,

Melvyn
