    My Latin is pretty rusty so I can’t make out some of the plant names. Will local people still be able to grow veg in the parts of the garden? Also, was there any response from the council on earlier feedback hedgerow vs. box?

    The idea for box hedging was abandaned, and I cant remember there being suggestions for a hedgerow. Maybe you mean other shrubs? There are no shrubs in the plans.

    There are no shrubs in proposals, to give structure and year round interest.
    There are 2 more Chaenomeles there at present not mentioned in proposals, both in lower SE bed – one is where D2 is written on proposals, next to East steps, and other next to Plane tree opposite Rochelle school. Can they be retained? There is also another (2?) Weigela next to South steps. They are popular.
    There is no mention of bulbs – We will be digging some up to save (and some with the children maybe) and hopefully some will survive in the soil. Is there a policy regarding them?
    Many of the proposed plants are interesting and attractive and liked by bees and butterflies.
