Wicker Hill Planting Schemes by Floral And Planting Designer Kitty Brown

Local floral and planting designer Kitty Brown (Katy) has created the planting schemes to be undertaken on Wicker Hill.

A thoughtfully put-together planting scheme has been created on both sides of the road so that they will complement each other nicely. Katy has also continued with the theme inspired by the piece of cloth from the Trowbridge Museum archives which was also used for designing the beds on Castle Street. Several of the same plants from Castle St will be used on Wicker Hill for continuity around the town.

The planting design has been created to include, where possible, plants that once established become drought tolerant. Some plants are attractive to bees and beneficial for pollinating insects helping to encourage them into our urban areas and the design is a colourful scheme that will provide all year-round interest throughout the seasons.

With the success of the spring bulbs in Castle Street, Katy has included bulbs in the mood board for Wicker Hill.

Katy, will be accompanied by Ron Lomas and Charlie from the Neighbourhood’s team in mid-may to start the setting out and planting of the new beds.
