Trench warfare is not for the true guerrilla


« on: January 26, 2009, 01:17:22 AM »

2009 and a new start. First project of the year is to replant the park in the middle of Bridge of Weir with trees. Trees that once stood proud within the Glen have died through disease and neglect. With the help of a local parks committee and horticultural society the aim is to add some interesting trees to the environment. I have purchased a few saplings for the project and as you can see, they are varied and interesting.

Drop me a line if you're interested in the project and I'll let you know how you can help.

Although this borders on Guerrilla Gardening concept, the idea is to do the job as quickly as possible with minimum of fuss. Once planted and protected with tree guards, the saplings should look after themselves.

Thanks my good friend for the excellent advice regarding trees, how to grow them from seed and where to site them to ensure maximum growing success. I'm in touch with the local council as of now to see if we can come to an arrangement. Wouldn't want them cutting down or strimming the saplings and young trees I want to plant.

Have a few other sites in mind and some friends close by who are willing to help out. Photos will follow once we've been in and out  Wink

The talk by Gay Search, the well known TV gardener down in Ayr, was cancelled due to the weather. Her flight from Heathrow was cancelled but we're hoping the talk will be rearranged for later in the month.

I wouldn't really be interested in this project but if you plan to do any guerrilla gardening in the area give us a shout. If not do you know of any guerrillas in the area.

This project is a little complex and that always comes with talking to groups of people about the pros and cons. It's taking time to configure as they say.

Where are you located? I live in Bridge of Weir but will travel. I have a few sites that can be utilised but want to keep it simple. If you want to meet up for a chat regarding the possibilities let me know.
