Blooming Bearwood!

Now that Spring has finally arrived and we've recovered from the arctic colds of last month, we've got some great news to share with our green fingered friends.

Due to popular demand Andrew's Plants have returned to Bearwood High Street and will be selling their plants outside of St Mary's Church every Friday and Saturday once again. We've definitely missed them!

It seems perfect timing that the Bearwood’s Best Front Garden Competition 2013, Let's Get Bearwood Blooming, has started too.

Caroline Jariwala, Bearwood's Mosiac Maker, sent us a photo of her front garden. Caroline told us that her front garden was planted in Autumn 2012 using the colours of the suffragette movement - green, white and violet. GWV also stood for Give Women Votes ....clever eh? Caroline's house was built circa 1906 during the heyday of the Suffragettes so it seemed the perfect theme.

The plants include Euphorbia, Lavender, Chocolate hollyhock, Penstomen, Chocolate mint, Alliums, 2 white roses, Black tulips,white, buddleja.
