Moseley in Bloom 2012 Launch

Moseley in Bloom will be launching its 2012 campaign on the weekend of 24th and 25th March and this year already looks to be action packed!

The Saturday will see the return of our stall on the award winning Moseley Farmers Market. Not only will you be able to purchase various springtime plants at the stall to help your garden and house escape the winter blues, but you will also be able to sign up as a “Friend of Moseley in Bloom” supporting the Moseley in Bloom initiative further and entitling you to a free Open Gardens ticket (which you will be able to collect on the day of the Open Gardens) along with other benefits!

The stall will also enable you to have a sneak peak of the work taking place with Queensbridge School on an anti-litter campaign which will hit Moseley during 2012.

From 10.30am on the Sunday sees the first of our Volunteers Weekends where we will be starting the second phase of the Car Park project. This exciting part of the project looks to improve the bedding area located next to Kingfishers (on the left hand side as you enter the car park). Improvements are designed to help ensure the area is safer, removing the pathway behind the laurels and ensuring a more attractive entrance for visitors of Moseley.

Preparation work will also be taking place on the Sunday at St Mary’s Church to create a wild-flower area – the start of an ambitious project which hopes to grow year on year in size. This links directly to the Royal Horticulture Society’s campaign to introduce more pollinating plants to help protect the vital insects such as butterflies, moths, hover-flies and bees that enable us to bloom each year…

We are seeking volunteers to help us on this day (which also coincides with the monthly car park clear up) so do please come along if you can along with any tools such as loppers, forks and spades. Don’t let the fear of hard grafting get to you however as there is plenty of lighter work available. You support is much needed! Help us to make Moseley to sparkle ready for Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations!
