The URC church in Ickenham wanted a garden that could be enjoyed by its congregation and the general community who use the church and garden.
The plants used are to give all year interest colour and scent. So we re-used existing roses that had been donated by a member of the congregation and complemented these with Lavenders, Nandinas, Pittosporum and scented Trachleospermum climbers. Then added bulbs of Daffodils and Alliums for early colour and Salvias and Mahonia for later colour.
This planting now brings warmth and colour and a smile to the visitors’ faces, who now have a community garden to enjoy.
