On 11 October I visited the Fetherston Gardens in Weston to see the new herb circle and the pome fruit espaliers in blossom set in 3.5-hectares of urban parkland. A Wednesday working bee was underway. Volunteers work from 10-12 on the second Wednesday of every month and from 10am to 1pm on the last Sunday of every month. As Lesley Pattinson says, there would be no Fetherston Gardens without the volunteers so they welcome everyone and have varied tasks to suit all abilities. The next working bees are November 8 and 26. Just turn up, wear sturdy shoes and bring your gardening gloves. The friends' goals are restore, regenerate and renew.
