Annual Plant Sale 2018 – Thursday 17th May 5 p.m. Charlton Station

Our plant sale at Charlton Station will this year be held on Thursday 17th May

It starts at 5 p.m. and lasts until our plants are gone….. not long after 6 usually.

This all happens on the concourse of Charlton Station – the side where the garden is,  next to the London to Kent side of the track.

 We will be selling vegetable, herb and flowering plants all ready to plant out.  These have all been grown and donated by Charlton Community Gardens volunteers.  Any further contributions are very welcome, but please let us know what the plant is, so we can tell purchasers.  This sale provides one of our main sources of funds for maintaining and continuing to develop both the garden at the station and our other projects i.e the community orchard in Charlton Park.

Our Easter Family Learning Event – Good weather was with us, and so were the children.

After the cold wet weather of recent weeks we were lucky that Thursday 5th April was a fine still day.  Our craft events went well and children left with butterflies and caterpillars made from milk bottles and wind chimes made from bamboo, jewels and flowerpots.

As ever, litter picking with the litter pincers, proved popular and helped keep the station tidy.

Purple is popping up all over……  Well, Wellington Gardens and Charlton Manor School anyway.

Wellington Gardens corms were planted by the Central Charlton Residents Association.
