Cannington In Bloom

Community Friends Flowers


Are you about to tidy your shed?

The bloomers are continuing in their quest to create a useful growing  space and base. We hope you may be able to help.

We have kindly been allowed the use of a polytunnel.


We’ll have it ship shape in no time!











We are nearly there and just need to patch a few holes and clean it. To complete our mission we need to acquire a few odds and sods.

We have a wish list and particularly need:

  • Weed supressant matting


  • Benches or staging to use as a work station and to put our plants on to stop the rabbits munching our blooms and veg!



Help us thwart this fellow (and his friends)!











Now back to the original question! If you have any gardening items knocking about in your shed that you don’t need and are still in useable condition, then please get in touch. Perhaps you have some old bags of compost, some pots gathering dust and spiders in a forgotten corner or a watering can that hasn’t seen water in a while…

Please let us know if you have anything that might us help in making Cannington even more beautiful……..

Thank you.

Blooming hard work….

The bloomers were out in force today, despite the precipitation!

We have very kindly been given the use of a polytunnel.

This means that we can grow on more of our own plants and extend the growing season.  Thus minimising the frenetic mass planting before judging day. Whilst the buzz of a challenge can be fun and rewarding, it was felt that spreading out the work load and reducing costs would be preferred!!

As you can see it needed a bit of clearing and reclaiming which the bloomers took to with characteristic gusto…

Getting stuck in!

Feel free to have a go at completing the caption above in our comments section below….

So it has been a good day for the team. The polytunnel needs some holes patching up, some new doors and some other bits and bobs., but we now have a base and we are thrilled!
