Programme for work in 2018

In late summer WCC carried out an extensive spraying programme over all of Lakewood Reserve. Some of the sprayed areas will become our planting blocks for this winter, after they have been cut-over and prepared. We are now extending north alongside the stream, and this year almost every plant will be on the flat. This is a big improvement from earlier years, when planting was on some very steep areas.
Over the summer the plants have made good growth, but as would be expected after the long dry spells, some will need to be replaced.
Once again 500 plants have been ordered from WCC.

The programme for the year is as follows:

Saturday 19 May. Cleanup day. This is to clear grass and weeds away from the existing plants.

Saturday 9 June   First planting day

Saturday 7 July   Second planting day.

All of these events will commence at 1pm, with the meeting place at the carpark for the tennis club off Lakewood Ave.
I will provide gloves and tools as appropriate.
If the weather is unsuitable, planting may be delayed to either within the following week or the following Saturday.
