In pleasant weather and with perfect planting conditions, last Wednesday saw ten keen volunteers plant 125 kilos of daffodil bulbs in just one hour and twenty minutes! Is this a record?
The bulbs were purchased by the Hythe in Bloom
partnership who invited volunteers from Hythe Civic Society and Transition Hythe to join them in putting them in the ground. The team planted half the grass verge in London Road last year and the latest work has completed the job.
A kind neighbour enjoyed the daffodils so much this spring that she was delighted to lay on refreshments for the workers.
There are plans to plant more daffodil bulbs – courtesy of Shepway District Council – at the entrance to Green
Lane, Hythe, in the next couple of weeks.Bulb planting 2015 007
Sally Chesters, joint organiser of Hythe in Bloom said: ‘The bulbs we planted in London Road last year looked
magnificent this spring, offering a wonderfully colourful welcome to Hythe. We were determined to cover all the grassed areas on both sides of the road and now we have. Next year London Road will be bursting with colour for all of us to enjoy.’
