West Farleigh in Bloom

 

 

West Farleigh in Bloom

 

West Farleigh entered the Village category of South and South East in Bloom for the first time in 2018 and we received a Bronze certificate. In 2019 we entered both the Village category and also the Churchyard category. In both we reached Silver medals.

 

We are entering the same 2 categories again in 2020 and are still aiming to better ourselves, at least a Silver Gilt this year!

Kent Wildlife Trust

 

We liaise with the local Kent Wildlife Trust alot in our efforts to support the environment in our village.

 

We have worked together to designate a large green expance managed by the Highways agency as a 'Wilder Verge'

They are also promoting Wild About Gardens which we are embracing. More can be found out here

Village Entry 2020 

 

Due to Covid-19, the competition this year is being judged remotely by a powerpoint presentation on our efforts rather than a face to face visit by the judges.

The judges visited West Farleigh on 4th July 2019 to see and access our efforts. They were given a presentation ahead of their visit which is attached below.

Feb: Grow Social

Posted on 5th March, 2020

With the days getting longer we can start to look forward to Spring – and having planted 1500 bulbs in September last year around the village we cant wait for them to come into flower. 

 

This year, with the help of Kent Wildlife, we want to focus on wild life / wild flower verges around the village.  Kent Wildlife Trust have offered to do a talk for any interested villagers on “Gardening for Wildlife” and we hope to be able to publish a date for this soon.

 

We will also be providing splashes of colours around the village with our planters – and will of course be encouraging everyone to keep our sunflower theme going.   Did you know that sunflowers are team players?  Research suggests they co-operate with neighbouring plants to share fertile patches of soil – sending out fewer roots.

 

We are always open to new ideas – please contact us via bloom@thefarleighs.co.uk
