Talgarth Road Blooms Again

Cllr Caroline ffiske writes:

In the winter of 2015 I approached TfL to see if I and local residents could plant a small number of spring bulbs on the wide grassy strip on the north side of Talgarth Road between Barons Court and West Kensington.  I’m pleased I did because at that moment they were looking for a suitable site for 36,000 spring bulbs.

A week later the bulbs were planted.Talgarth 1  They did quite well in the spring of 2016, but they are even better this year.  They come in waves – the small crocuses have been and gone – and in this picture (taken a week ago) most of the daffodils are still to come.

So if you can’t make it to Kew Gardens this year to see the spring flowers, take a stroll down Talgarth Road.  You won’t regret it.
