The Importance of a Planting Scheme


Planting the flower beds

Support from Adrian from Broxbourne Council and our partners helped create a specially designed scheme.

Broxbourne Council (, Seed Harvest Organisation ( and Aid 4 Disabled ( were consulted on this area. A list of each bed was devised against suggestions from a heritage list  and research conducted by one of our volunteers (Click here to view our plant research). Plants were purchased from Clockhouse Nurseries (, Rochford Nurseries ( and Norfolk Lavender Fields (add link).

Plants and their arrangement were important to create a sense of depth and height as visitors walk around the raised beds. Bulbs and various bedding plants were planted by our team of volunteers during our Make a Difference Day, October 22 2016. The wooden railway sleepers also provide a seating place for people to reflect and observe the surrounding area.
