Village in Bloom Team have been working hard to keep planters alive around the village in this exceptionally hot and dry weather. They have worked out a watering system with the use of a large water tank on wheels to pull through the village.
In this continued hot weather think about the planters and trees in your neighbourhood. If you have a tree on a grass verge by you, especially a young tree, give it some water. Most have a pipe in the ground that you can see from the surface this goes down to the roots. You might help keep it alive and help keep Acocks Green Green!
You can read a lot more about the work of Acocks Green Village in Bloom on their page on this site Village in Bloom
