A January "Winterlude" with Friends of the Civic Gardens

Volunteers with ReForest London's Parks Action Team broke out their spring wear and escaped from the mid-winter gloom this past weekend with a potting event with the Friends of the Civic Gardens at the Civic Gardens greenhouse!

This is the first time ReForest London has been able to hold a potting event with a local greenhouse. In total, 864 oak acorns and white spruce seedlings were potted up and given a new home in the greenhouse, where they will be looked after by the Friends until this spring, when they will be ready for use in ReForest London events.

Many thanks to our volunteers Lilka, Bill, Mark, Dave, Christine and Jen for all their help, and extra-special thanks to Gail Dimson from Friends of the Civic Gardens for making this event possible and sharing her knowledge of greenhouse propagation with us.
