WINDOWSILL GARDENERS CAMPAIGN

We need your help.  We have no greenhouse and are looking for locals to grow seedlings on your windowsills and then bring them to the garden to plant in a couple of months.  Click HERE for leaflet for more information

Here’s a useful article from BBC Gardening about growing on your windowsills – http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/digin/your_space/windowsill.shtml

What’s the plan?

We’ve got lots happening: wildflowers, hops and lavender, a small fruit orchard, a herb circle and raised beds and always a multitude of different flowers. Along with experiments like wicking raised beds to solve our water issues.

Here’s the original design from co-founder, Landscape Architect, Steve Frazer.

2011 was our first full year of gardening at the garden and it’s changed dramatically since we started. We hope to encourage more local residents to get involved in growing food and flowers, and making this part of London a haven for wildlife as well as a useful, productive piece of land.

Where is it?

Over 500m2 of unused land in central London, Bramford Gardens is situated within a few metres of Wandsworth Town train station, opposite the glorious landmark which is the Wandsworth Gyratory roundabout!
