SSWCG wildflower growalong

Volunteers are growing wildflower plugs for planting out in verges around the village, to improve the biodiversity and help our pollinators - and also because they look good! We did this in 2021 and it was a great success, we produced more than 1600 plants, which volunteers planted out in October 2021. Many of these are now becoming established around the village.

See how we're getting on...
