Get green-fingered at Charlton House’s Old Pond Garden from Tuesday

Old Pond Garden
Old Pond Garden at Charlton House

At Christmas, we featured the volunteer scheme to restore the Old Pond Garden at Charlton House. With lockdown easing, the Charlton and Blackheath Amateur Horticultural Society is ready to restart work. Here’s the latest update….

The Old Pond Garden volunteer scheme will re-open from Tuesday March 9th, all gardening levels are welcome. Sessions will be Tuesdays 1.30-3.30 and Thursdays 10-12, as before lockdown. We are lobbying hard for a Sunday session in the near future.

The garden is looking good, please come along to see progress and pull a weed (or three), and check out the latest planting plans.

We also hope to start dealing with the Long Borders, so we need all the help we can get!

We can always do with donations of primroses (native, yellow) and any snowdrops in the green.
