Buddies to recycle plants from Rotary garden

Buddies to recycle plants from Rotary garden

PLANTS in a Henley community garden are to be re-used.

Members of the town’s Gardening Buddies rescued 22 plants from about 60 in the Rotary beds in Mill Meadows.

The volunteers and four people from the Thames Valley community payback scheme dug up the plants for use elsewhere in the town. The beds, which were created 12 years ago, will be redesigned with new plants.

Both Henley Rotary Club and the Rotary Club of Henley Bridge will give £250 towards the revamp.

Elizabeth Hodgkin, who leads the gardening group, said: “We’re going to take some of the plants home to look after over the winter and then use them elsewhere. The whole bed is going to be taken out and that is why we need the community payback guys’ help because we can’t get under some of the roots.

“The Rotary clubs have given us finance and we are going to come back to replant the garden in February or March. For now we are putting some nice compost down and letting it work its magic.”
