Did you know that all the plants that attract butterflies will also attract moths?
'Yes, so, moths are ugly!' We hear you cry, well actually they are incredibly beautiful and we will be sharing lots about them over the next two weeks.
Moths need to refuel with nectar to give them the energy they need for flying, just like butterflies and when you only weigh the same as a couple of bits of tissue paper you need to refuel a lot!
What are your favourite butterfly plants?
Ours are buddleias, they are easy, cheap and even a complete beginner can grow one!

I was just about to email you but I’ll do it on here, we are over the moon with how they came out! Thankyou all so much xx

Our Ladybirds company is turning down work every day at the moment because we do not have enough girls.
If you are a girl, reasonably fit, have a basic knowledge of gardening, drive and have a car, a good sense of humour and can obey instructions you might fit in with our team.
Please call Donna Richardson on 07967917161, if she does not answer please send a text, we are very busy and very hot!
Thank you.

Vegetables galore for the fabulous Chay Godfrey from his charity Crops not Shops, Guerilla food allotments! Chay and his team take over unused land and plant vegetables to feed the surrounding community. They will also take over any unwanted space in your garden to plant vegetables to feed you and your community, but you do need to maintain them!
We are very glad that our veg have gone to some excellent homes, but we, like may others in our industry have taken a big financial hit this year, so its swings and roundabouts all round.
Do please like Chay's page and follow on as him and his team change the face of our front gardens!
Thanks Chay for driving across several counties to pick these up!

Loving these lupins too!
Sun loving plants, but these do enjoy their shady roots.
Easy to grow.
The bumble bees love them.

Debbie gets two pictures.
Our newest volunteer and def our most well put together.
Debbie helps out every Thursday and we all put the world to rights while she is here.
She always has a smile for us, is a bit of a giggler, never turns down a task and for some reason we cannot fathom she just keeps coming back!
Debbie moved down to Whitstable with her husband to be near her grand children and is happily retired after a lifetime of teaching small children.

Our longest serving volunteer Rachelle.
Staff comedian, (she should do stand up) always lightens the mood, a huge caring heart who feels unjustness and unfairness very strongly.
She loves all things pink and glittery, like a Magpie, is a bit of a Princess and adores her three girls.
Loyal to a t she is someone you always need at your side, just don’t forget the Tena Ladies!!!

Working hard I see !

Arrr thats lovey 😍

Love this girl ❀️ lucky to know her x

Celebrating Elaine who was a volunteer and who was so brilliant we took her on as staff!
She is calm, dedicated, focused, reliable and steady, a perfect balance to the rest of us.
She works like a machine and will soon have triceps to die for as she is getting very familiar with the edgers.
As soon as she arrives we alll breathe a sigh of relief as we know it will all be fine while she is here.
Elaine lives in Whitstable with her husband and four boys so delights in hanging out with the girls here!
In her spare time she grows veg and makes things with cob.

We just had a wonderful conversation with Neil Wells.
He wanted a mushroom kit to grow at home.
While we made the postal quote he chatted away to us.
He started in the RAF as a police man, then moved to the Met as a Traffic Officer, eventually retiring as Chief Superintendent after 32 years in London.
His last role was as personal driver to PM Maggie Thatcher. He told her she should bring back National Service (as well as some other things).
He told us several tales about how he nearly got shot and how he once enjoyed sandwiches and whiskey with Francis Pimm, the then Defence Minister during the Iraq/Iran war, after driving him to an emergency meeting from South Barnet to 10 Downing Street in 25 minutes!
Francis had never had a faster journey as Neil had previously arranged all the traffic lights to be green to allow his blue light through.
We just wanted to share the delightful memories of this elderly gent and give him a bit of a shout out for serving his country so well.
Today he was enjoying sitting in his garden chatting to us.
We still have mushroom kits too in case anyone else is inspired to grow their own.

Oh my look at these irises!
We may have to start selling them.
No idea where the dark purple one came from!
We recommend irisofsissinghurst.com/product-category/kent-irises/ for iris purchasing.
Did you know that Hymenopteran bees are considered the principal pollinating agents of Iris species??

Some of the behind the scenes work!
Three full days for three people.
About ten van/car loads (thanks Adam!) and ten trips between Detling and the nursery.
A lot, lot, lot of bark. (Thanks Daniel).
A lot, lot, lot of plants. (Thanks girls.)
A lot, lot, lot of labour. (Thanks girls).
A sprinking of love, a whole heap of determination and the driving magical force of Donna!
We did it!
Now for three days of talking, selling, suggesting and being nice (do excuse us for any vacant moments).
Then the take down omg.
