Guerrilla gardener and horticultural heroine Marian Temple writes: “This idea has been suggested to me by several people over the years and I think maybe this is theÂ year it should happen. Nightingale Green is the little green down the end of Nightingale Lane (offÂ Grosvenor Road ) next to the Nightingale pub. No spring bulbs there. It would do peopleâ€™s heartsÂ good to see â€˜em. Iâ€™m suggesting one Sunday towards the end of September or early October. Thatâ€™sÂ the earliest I can do. Could be a great community event with local families or local anyone involvedÂ and of course the pub would be part of it.
What I need is a couple of other people who could help me get this mini project off the ground (asÂ well as the bulbs in the ground). Primarily publicity with flyers delivered to locals and put on trees.Â Plants also need to be dug up from my garden or the Corner House Garden for over planting ourÂ bulb patches. Stuff like that. All good fun. Please get in touch with me via the Wansteadium if youÂ can help organise this.”
