Plant bombing at Brockley Common today

It's not too late to get down to Brockley Station to finish off the Common planting with the Transition Town team, who have invited anyone with a plant to come and plant it with them between 1pm and 3pm today.

Presumably Japanese knot weed not welcome - here are the instructions:

Bring any plant(s), or seeds etc of either edibles, herbs or flowers.Probably best to bring perennials or hardy plants to survive without lots of TLC, but it's up to you. If it's edible or colourful and you like it, bring it and plant it.

Bring whatever implement and water (in a plastic bottle?) you need for your planting or seeds - the ground has been composted.

If you can bring some mulch (can be grass cuttings - if you don't have any, does your neighbour?) this will help to keep down weeds and conserve moisture round your plant(s).For those who have gardens, thinning out is a good source of spare plants.

Basically no-one is being prescriptive about what you bring, and nature will decide what survives.We like the idea of edibles and of people picking leaves (eg rocket) or herbs on their way home from work.

The results of a good afternoons planting can now be seen at the end of the ramp where the performance space is eventually planned to go.

Whilst not having quite the finished and immediate effect that the BXAG planting in the beds has it certainly looks a lot better and all done at no cost. Once all the plants have grown fully it should be a riot of colour, scent and taste!

Thanks to all that came and helped out!
