1000 Crocus Corms planted at Hillfield Gardens

Wed, Oct 26th 2022 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Today 1000 crocus corms donated by Rotary@Kingsholm were planted by Hillfield Gardens’ community gardening team around where a tree from the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee’s Tree of Trees will be planted in November


The crocus corms were planted as part of Rotary’s End Polio Now Campaign. The crocuses are a reminder of the need to beat the battle against Polio. 

Hillfield Gardens is a tranquil community space in KIngsholm. 

Hillfield Gardens has been awarded a tree from the “Tree of Trees” sculpture which formed the glorious green centrepiece to the late Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations at Buckingham Palace.
