Wildflower Gardens at Neston Methodist Church and Community Centre 2014

August 2014 marks One Hundred Years of the start of World War I and in commemoration, plantings are being established at Neston Methodist Church.
The Welcome Porch Garden
The gardens and borders alongside Liverpool Rd have been sown to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War. The native Red Poppy flowered along the battlefields and became a symbol of remembrance, loss and hope for a different future.
The gardens include The Welcome Porch garden (to the left of the Porch entrance), The Gravel Porch garden (to the right containing pots and planters), The Step Borders (either side of the original front entrance), and The Liverpool Road side borders.
Work commenced early in March with the weeding, digging, raking and preparing the ground, and seed was sown on Saturday 15th March.
We are very grateful for various seed mixtures which were kindly donated by Anne Tudor and Joan Voce who have helped us along the way. Wildflower mixes included: "Butterfly Garden", "Bee Attracting Garden", "Cornfield Annuals Mixed", "Poppy Flanders", and "Cornfield Flowers: Wildflowers". Special dwarf varieties for window boxes and pots "Patio Perfection Annual mix window sill" have also been sown.
These photos show the newly sown gardens - expect bare soil!
