As I was meandering on my way to the North Lambeth Fete this afternoon, I cut through both Archbishop's Park
and St Mary's Gardens.
Although the new plantings put in by Lambeth seem to have survived the winter pretty well, and look very attractive, I was disappointed to see that so many weeds has been allowed to grow - up to a yard high - and set seed.
In addition, in St Mary's Gardens there are a couple of outbreaks of field bindweed, which is starting to strangle other plants.
Do the parks department employ someone capable of distinguishing between ornamental plants and weeds who could have dealt with these in the last month???
I half filled a bin in Archbishop's park with weeds from the boundary border with the Palace gardens. Is more guerilla gardening needed?
