May Edition of Country Gardener

Spring hopefully is really here with the May edition of the Hampshire Country Gardener. This  is now available from the Physic Garden and may be collected from the office or the box hanging on the left handside of the archway. The magazine is popular with its 40 coloured pages packed with interesting articles, photos and good advice. Topics this month feature articles on bees in your garden, clematis woes and flower clock gardens.
It also includes items of news and gardening events through Hampshire and the West Country. With its collections of regular features, good advice and reader's letters it makes an excellent read.
This is a free magazine which is now printed in Somerset and covers five areas Devon, Dorset, Somerset, The Cotswolds and Hampshire.. The publication which aims to give quality information about  gardening and garden events in and around the area covered is an essential magazine for enthusiastic gardeners.

Lots of Easter activities provided fun and entertainment for adults and children.
The pictures show children in two of the activities. One group is busily looking for Easter Eggs hidden in the herb beds. The other young lady is planting her sunflower seeds in an egg bo to take home. Hopefully she will there watch them germinate and grow.
Pre-Easter Litter Pick
The Garden acted as a hub for a town March litter pick on a sunny Saturday morning.Run by Beth Syarovska on behalf of the Petersfield Societyit aimed to have a tidy town by Easter. A number of volunteers accompanied by Town Mayor, Town Crier and an overgrown rabbitset forth with purple sacks and litterpickers to their designated areas to get to work. By the end of the morning the centre of the town sparkled and many of the surrounding streets and open spaces were also left litter free. If only it would stay that way!
Pruning Workshop

All the volunteer gardeners were brought up to speed in practical pruning with the help of Roger Grange
