As time goes by i slowly become aware of a broader variety of plants growing in our Community Gardens,

Here are just a few of the plants we have in residence at the Community Gardens with some very interesting history and background reading to be found, note these aren't being grown by gardeners but aren't hard to miss.

Datura stramonium - Thorn Apple - Jimson Weed

Portulaca - Purslane - Pig Weed

Rumex acetosella - Sheep sorrel - sour weed

Malva parviflora - Marshmallow


Harlequin Beetles

more Harlequin Bugs and their control
