South Woodford Gardeners plant 500 bulbs ready for spring


Members of the South Woodford Gardeners took part in Redbridge Council’s Big Planting Weekend in October.

“We were pleased to be given 200 daffodil bulbs and 300 tulip bulbs by the council. We started by planting some in George Lane, and the rest will be planted in the beds on the bridge over the A406. Look out for them next spring,” said Jane Turner.

The annual Big Bulb Giveaway – which saw over 40,000 spring-flowering bulbs distributed across the borough – is designed to help improve local neighbourhoods.
