After an interesting visit to our potential plant supplier, TAG have arrived at a suitable planting focus - the Hebe.
With around 90 species, this plant satisfies so many of the key requirements for our project:
Will thrive on our North-facing roof
Ideal for container gardening
And critically bee and butterfly friendly.
In fact, the Hebe is recommended by the RHS, and Gardeners Guild, among others, as bee-attracting.
In conjunction with our original proposal for Community First Funding (who have financed this project) our roof garden will feature a strong youth element, poetically-endorsed as Greek mythology proclaims Hebe to be the Goddess of Youth.
Work has begun modifying our stack of 'Haringey Recycles!' plastic bins. Now featuring a TAG grass cover design. And with a handful of Molotow markers arriving in the post, we're primed for next weekend's TAG Bug Fest.
