Detail: Plants & Gardening Equipment


Last year we took over a small park in Heckmondwike that had been neglected. We cleared the weeds and have added some plants, however most of these were annuals plants that were donated. We also created a herb garden and a bug hotel. We received an award for the RHS for our efforts. We would like to continue to develop the park, particularly by adding perennial plants which will not need replacing annually. We have also been given another small green space in the town centre. So far we have only cleared the area and now need to plant that area up also. We also look after the planters in the town centre so need plants.
