A new wild flower meadow has been established on the traffic island between The George pub and Wanstead Tube Station.

“It was a tremendous project with a huge amount of work involved. We just managed to finish all the preparation and get the seeds footed in before the rain at the end of April. If all goes according to plan, we should have a wild flower meadow by July or August. We’ve sown a very tough mix of various grasses and flowers,” said Marian Temple of the Wanstead Community Gardeners.
