Planting up the flower beds

Another new project completed over winter 2022/spring 2023. It takes its name, chosen by ballot by our volunteers, from the island it overlooks, Raven’s Ait. This is the long stretch between the Catherine Road and Uxbridge Road entrances. It was once an uncared-for grassy stretch with some isolated shrubs, lacking identity or colour.

After preparing the beds, we have planted over 200 drought-tolerant plants which will take care of themselves in this changing climate. We will take particular care to create a pollinator-friendly area too. It has brought back immediate character to this area and attracted attention from many passersby.

The ‘forest of sunflowers’ planted in May 2023 have added summer interest to the flower beds
