Last Call for Flax Sowing

We’re nearing the deadline to sow flax and we’re getting a flurry of interested groups – from parks, to estates to primary schools.  I’m spending the weekend with bags of seed hoping to pressgang people into getting involved.  As part of this mission I went over Clapton way (scarily out of my postcode) to Daubeney Park which is a beautiful space that I’ve never been to before – or even knew it existed. That’s the wonder of London; there’s always something new to discover.  And we found lots of space for sowing flax but decided on this strip – out of the way – next to the river.  The nice young man on the right is (or will be) included.Image

And here’s another lovely plot in the Gascoyne Estate – in the Mandiba garden. The girls want to grow a dress.

On Monday Susie Wareham and I will be going to the Castle Climbing Centre garden May Day fete on Monday for more recruiting.
