The BUJFC invited me to take on a bare patch of land near the entrance to the football ground which I am pleased to say I have now completed.
Some of the plants were kindly donated by the Birstall garden centre and the Wyevale garden centre.
With an emphasis on food and wildlife, the area was split into two. One was improved with leaf mulch and planted with a mix of edibles, such as strawberries, chilli’s and tomatoes, and finished off with a slate stepping stone path.
The other section has a cox’s orange pippin apple tree, and was landscaped with gravel.
There was also a habitat pile for small animals and a bug hotel for bees, butterflies and other insects.
