Hundreds of Sussex schoolchildren and college students, aged from six to 18, will help create new habitat for the rapidly declining butterfly. Millions of elm have been lost across Sussex and other parts of the country over the last 40 years due to Dutch elm disease, an infection first brought over to the UK on imported logs from Canada. The trees will add to the existing woodland and form hedgerows over the acre Lancing College Estate. The butterfly will use the new elm trees when they reach maturity and produce their first flowers, which takes around five to seven years. Volunteers from BC Sussex will then be able to carry out butterfly surveys and help younger volunteers learn how to spot the White-letter Hairstreak and its eggs. If you want to find out more about the project or get involved, please contact Project Officer, Jamie Burston. You can also message him on Twitter jamieburston or contact the Sussex Branch directly. If you want to take part in a conservation event or attend a guided walk, visit the Events pages for more information. Read our ambitious new strategy to see how you can help.

The centre is where women, men and families recovering from trauma can spend time tending a garden, planting seeds and re-connecting with nature. Their mission is well-aligned with our work of empowering women and improving mental health through access to gardening initiatives. We kicked off the project by asking people using the SEED Foundation centre about their gardening experience, their favourite plants and flowers, and what they would like to see in the garden. All wanted a mixture of food and flowers to be included the garden and the majority wanted the play area to be repaired. We made several visits to the centre to prepare the garden and repair the playground and created fun novelty planters to encourage children to help tend the garden. They were each given part of a planter to care for and shown how to plant the seeds and water them in.

The support from the Stanley Smith UK Horticultural Trust will enable the horticulture team at Broomfield to help restore the Victorian gardens to their former glory — buying new plants, shrubs and semi mature trees. Eleven volunteers are already helping with clearing, planting and maintenance of the grounds but Head Gardener Samantha Harvey explained that the real hard work was just about to begin. The gardens at Broomfield Hall were created when the original hall was built in by industrialist Charles Schwind. They still retain the Victorian layout and the plan is to improve these further with several developments including contemporary herbaceous planning, designing; planting a sub-tropical area and installing colourful rainbow planting. We already welcome tours of organised groups such as garden societies and WIs but want to broaden this out to the wider general public. However, we would also be grateful for the input of local people who can volunteer some of their time to be part of this exciting project. We are undertaking tasks that we have always done as gardeners but it is great to learn more about why we do it and the benefits for the plants.
