Gardens within the Greens Edit
A number of Greens have separate gardens in them, such as New Southgate, which has a small Children's Garden, where the local children play a big part in designing, choosing and planting it.
Borders, Entrances and other Garden Features Edit
It is important to have volunteers ready to maintain a garden if a Green decides to create one. Many Greens have certain volunteers who are particularly interested in gardening, often including people who do not have a garden of their own.
All Greens have weeding of some sort to do, such as edges of paths. Flower beds will always need weeding and the general advice experienced gardeners will usually give is that the more often weeding is done, the smaller and easier to remove the weeds will be.
Sponsorship and DonationsEdit
Most garden centres and other shops that sell plants can be pressed for donations of plants. If our teams know anyone that works in one, bargain plants, or even plants destined for the skip can be scrounged and used. The entire hedge of the Children's Garden in New Southgate came from a Homebase skip.
