New Date: join us Saturday 25 March
Hello neighbour. Join us for a cuppa at the community garden on Albion Court. We'll be there from 10am to 1pm.
On the day you can:
have a chat and a look around
enjoy hot drinks and treats - just bring your own mug
pick up some free seeds for your windowsill
take a tour of the garden in winter - including our beds on Dudley Street and Wenlock Street.
Children welcome - come and say hello!
About this garden
Albion Court is a small but perfectly formed mini-orchard, herb and vegetable plot.
Planting style is relaxed, with 3 fruit trees at the back and artichokes at the front bringing structure and height. A wood chip path and stepping stones allow access, and the rest is easily accessible from the outside of this brick raised bed.
Relaxed companion planting
Apple and pear trees
What you can do here
Join our gardening sessions
Water in your own time

Help yourself to kitchen herbs (parsley and chives love being cut)
Pick litter when you walk past (nearest bins are on the way to Burr Street)
What's growing this season
Broad and field beans
Herbs and flowers
Curry plant (helichrysium)
What's great here
great mix of height and textures
nice to sit in the sun on the wall
What's challenging here
notorious for fly tipping on one corner
currently no water nearby
We'd love to work with Albion Court residents to install a number of water butts so we can fill up our watering cans.
