Green-fingered residents acting as volunteer care takers of Fortune Green welcomed the arrival of spring with the start of their weekly gardening sessions.

On Sunday, Friends of Fortune Green joined professional gardeners to plant, prune, weed and tidy up the beds of the green.

The group’s “Love Our Green Sundays” sessions have this year been sponsored by West Hampstead’s Manuel Swaden Solicitors, allowing them to employ professional gardeners to lead the sessions and give out gardening advice.

A spokeswoman from Manuel Swaden said: “We are proud to be part of the continued contribution of this dedicated group of residents to beautify this much loved open space. ”
