Volunteers from the Pinner Association have, with the consent of Harrow Council, renovated a disused “flower bed” in the Bridge Street Gardens in central Pinner. The bed was dug over and weeded and the soil was found to be in pleasingly good condition. A selection of evergreen flowering shrubs and plants and spring flowering bulbs have been now been planted, which we hope will grow into a compact display which will enhance this small but important open space for many years to come. Our volunteers will continue to maintain this bed, as we do for the Pinner Station flower beds.
The plant list for the new bed is:
- Choisya ternata
- Choisya ternata “Sundance”
- Choisya x dewitteana “Aztec Gold”
- Choisya x dewitteana “White Dazzler”
- Yucca gloriosa variegata
- Chamaecyparis pisifera filifera nana
- Ophiophogon planiscapus “Nigrescens”
- Narcissus “Jetfire”
- Narcissus “Minnow”
All the costs of the planting were paid by Pinner Association funds, which come from our members’ annual subscriptions. Details of how you can become a member and help us to continue to enhance life in Pinner may be found on the Membership pages of this website.
