We aim to improve the planting around Ringwood over the next few years, not just to make it pretty but also to improve habitats and room for pollinators. We are starting with the Gateway area, Pocket park and Jubilee Gardens.
So far 6 tonnes of compost have been added to the beds outside Gateway, over 1,400 bulbs and numerous bulbs have been planted. You may have noticed that the foxgloves are back.
At Pocket Park Dogwood and Bluebells have been added under the silver birch trees.
In Jubilee Gardens the 2 new raised beds have been planted with donated items that will replace the annuals and provide a better habitat for insects
