Lots to do to help Kirkstall bloom!

As you may be aware Kirkstall in Bloom is again entering Yorkshire in Bloom – judging is on the 12th July. So with a little over six weeks to go there is *a lot* to do, writes James Corah.

Bank Holiday weekend is our big annual summer plantathon. This year we are again spreading over two days and ANY time over this period you can help us would be massively appreciated. Or if you can gift/lend us large bottles to assist with watering we would love those too – anything over five litres.

Times below are approximate – we will try to keep updating Twitter. As always all tools will be provided along with some light refreshments. 

On Saturday, 27th May, we will be on site between 10.30am to 3pm-ish with a likely break for lunch at the Abbey Deli market if you wish to join us to buy food or bring a ‘packed lunch’.

We have a lot of tasks to do including digging in new soil, tying back the daffodils and other tasks in preparation for summer planting.

On Sunday, 28th May, will be on site between 10.30am-1pm-ish – quite likely finishing with a drink at a local hostelry. We will be planting out all the summer bedding plants and anything outstanding from Sat.

While this weekend is the initial big push we are going to have a lot more to do and will likely have some additional weekend/evening sessions before our usual end on month session on Sunday 25th June. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook accounts for more info.

Finally we have also been funded by Leeds Wellbeing Grant for a couple of community projects this year (thank you!). The first being at Kirkstall Art Trail on Saturday 15th July, so please save that date for the diary.Facebook
