Friends of Rose Hill Station

RH: The station is brightened by gardens and artwork created by Friends of Rose Hill Station volunteers.

The garden areas at the station have been created and are maintained by a small group of volunteers, the Friends of Rose Hill Station.

Working since 2011, we have cultivated considerable areas around the car park area and installed planters along the platform. The planting includes a community orchard and a ‘help yourself’ herb bed. While we use a selection of bedding plants each summer to provide splashes of colour, much of our planting focusses on perennials and shrubs and we have always to keep in mind reducing both the amount of watering and the degree of attention our beds will need. We are not there on a daily basis and we must conserve water as much as we can. We aim for a long season of insect friendly flowering plants.

Over the weekend ...

With support from the Rose Hill Allotments, volunteers from the Friends of Rose Hill Station will be available to greet visitors over the Open Gardens weekend, 8th and 9th July between the period 11am - 5pm each day. They will be reviewing the different parts of the areas on which they have been working over the years along with the further improvements planned.

A plant sale is also planned, for as long as plants are available, and plant expert, Jane Massam, from Angelica Flowers and Gardens, will also be visiting the Station to give a free Garden Advice session on Saturday 8th between 11am – 12noon.
