GARDEN GROWS: Kings Langley village garden blooms as more flowers are planted

 Published on: 21st August 2020   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

The village garden in Kings Langley has grown as 200 more plants have been added to its collection.

During the recent heat wave, Kings Langley Parish Council got to work on the third of an acre garden and decided to spruce up the garden before the rain came.

Councillor Alan Johnson, a member of the council, has been working on the garden now for five years and said before he started it was a heavily wooded area.

Since then, cllr Johnson with the help from the parish warden, his wife, and volunteers have been working to add more colour to the garden.

He said: “We always aim to add a bit more colour.

“The garden now has a nice open lawn area with a couple of flower beds.”

cllr Johnson said that the recent planting took around six and a half hours to complete.

He said: “We knew it would have been a nightmare if we had waited because of the bad weather so we cracked on and did it all in one day.

Cllr Johnson also said that the number of people visiting the garden has increased and they continue to receive positive feedback.

He said: “More people have been coming into the village garden and sitting around on the grass.

“When the public visit they have been saying things like ‘this is marvellous’

“Everybody who has visited has been really positive.”

There is lots more to come for the village garden, as the site may be a potential location for the village market.

This comes after the recent success of trialling the market in the garden after it was cancelled because of COVID-19.
