Planning the Planting at Sherbourne House Sherbourne House

In early February we began working with a group of students from Stroud College at Sherbourne House. We are creating a new fruit, flower and vegetable garden for the residents of this sheltered housing scheme in Stonehouse.

To begin with, students met the residents to ask them what kinds of things they would like to see growing in their new raised beds.

As a result of those conversations we have designed a planting plan - raised planters will sit on the patio where residents will be able to harvest strawberries and lettuces growing at waist height; sunflowers and runner beans will shoot up from the ground level beds; gooseberry and blackcurrant bushes will rub shoulders with existing ornamental plantings in the lawn area.

In short, we hope it will be a feast for all the senses!Greggs
