Update on planting for Fernhurst
The area on the corner of The Leys:  The Leys corner has also been an enjoyable project, our lovely seat was unveiled on Friday 30 July and now just waiting for better weather so all can enjoy sitting and watching the 'Fernhurst' world go by. The site of the seat has been altered slightly, having listened to the concerns about mobility accessibility from some local folk.

The raised bed on the corner of Vann Road, opposite Crossways Fruiterers: The raised bed opposite our wonderful vegetable shop has continued to keep us occupied and is taking great shape. We have enjoyed hearing peoples compliments whilst there. I think you will agree that it will only get better as the plants establish themselves. Blackdown Publishers very kindly allowed us to place two water butts from their downpipe to collect rainfall to keep our plants watered, as this becomes necessary after such a wet May!

If you are looking for more ideas for your garden in winter then the garden at RHS Wisley is the place to go. Donít forget that, as a member of the Fernhurst Hort Soc you may borrow the Society's RHS card which entitles you and a friend to discounted entry at all RHS gardens.
