London In Bloom Gold Awards

London In Bloom | Friends of Gladstone Park

Gladstone Park won a Gold in the Walled Garden category in London in Bloom for the third time in a row.  The Gladstone Gardening Group, along with Veolia, have worked hard to achieve this, renovating the north bed and terrace beds and also the rose beds which have been pruned, fed and mulched.

Gladstone Park also won a Gold in the Large Parks category, in part due to local community involvement.  

People have turned up to help with the monthly litter picks organised throughout the spring and summer; at the planting of 440m of British native hedge plants along the railway line; at the weekly gardening group which regularly has over 12 enthusiasts working each Wednesday and at the copse where hazels were coppiced and dead hedges created to delineate pathways.

Walks and talks on birds, trees, lichens and mosses, nature and bats have been well attended.
