The taste of flowers to come can now be seen at the evolving Diamond Jubilee Garden in Battle.
The naturalised area planned to reflect the importance of 'wild' flowers is now blooming on site at the Ambulance Station. Seed gathered in 2010 and scattered from flowers originally planted on the site two years ago by students from Plumpton College at Ivylands, Netherfield, are now in full flower and attracting a wealth of bees and insects. Volunteers are also seen here planting chamomile and creeping thyme between the new paving slabs, plants that not only soften the hard landscaping, but also exuding an aromatic fragrance when walked upon. This is certainly a sensory garden in the making.
