Preparatory session for GoodGym Richmond’s ‘second Monday of the Month’ Group Run session at our sponsored plots in Buccleuch Gardens Richmond.

Early April, weather sunny and mild so effort now will pay huge dividends later in the year.

  1. Indoor sowing of Foxglove Alba, Night Scented Stock and Phacilia.

  2. Bagging up of Pampas grass cuttings from 11 March 2024 Richmond GG Buccleuch Gardens Group Run ( the cuttings had unfortunately shown themselves to be tough and not amenable to composting without chipping ).

  3. Removing other unsuitable material from the compost area.

  4. Digging out the most obvious weeds and dead plant material from the Arcade Rockery.

  5. Digging out all identified dandelions, nettles and hog weed at The Three Pigeons Plot.

  6. Digging out some of the invasive lawn grass at The Three Pigeons Plot.

  7. Further cutting back of dead stems and leaves of the pampas grass at The Three Pigeons Plot.

  8. Litter picking

  9. Watering plants in the Arcade.

  10. Putting together a task list for the Monday evening Group Run.

  11. Spot weeding dandelions by the Benches.

Hard work was rewarded by the wonderful Thames-side location, interest and ‘Thank Yous’ from passers-by, an inquisitive robin at the compost heap, an unusual massing of spider’s at the Three Pigeon’s and a warm and sunny early April day.
