Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

Winter Beauty is the name of a clematis that I would hate to be without. It is flowering now with thick petalled creamy white bells. The leaves are evergreen and it is a vigorous grower. It is labelled borderline hardy but I have had it for years growing up the outside of my conservatory, with no nice warming wall at its back. The roots are covered by an abelia shrub so that offers it some protection. If it gets too big you cut it back after flowering. I prefer it to the rather flimsy clematis cirrhosa, again a creamy white bell, this time with varying amounts of maroon spots inside it. This can be very vigorous. The later flowering clematis armandii is very vigorous and the leaves are tough and dark green. I think this can be a bit of a thug and it often retains ugly dead leaves. ...

They purport to be calling from the Bank or from the Police and gently lead people to giving out their bank details. This is something that does not happen with genuine calls from banks or the police. ...

Church Tidy Up – Thank You

Church The Villager

The PCC would like to thank everyone who helped with the annual Autumn Tidy up this year. Owing to the weather it took place on two different days in November, with those who couldn’t manage either date doing their bit when it suited them. Drains and gutters were cleared, headstones freed from ivy and the last of the leaves swept up. One of the main targets was the bit in the middle by the lime trees which had become rather overgrown. Hopefully now that some of the older graves have been cleared and exposed and the grass around them cut it will be easier to keep under control in the future. ...
