Beeston In Bloom held a plant sale at the Watsonian Pavilion in Cross Flatts Park on Saturday (24 April 2021).
Aspiring and experienced gardeners perused the prennials and assessed the annuals in a Covid-safe way, snapping up plants at bargain prices. Beeston In Bloom took a record amount on the day, which will all be ploughed back into community projects.
Secretary, Linda Stanley said:
“Our plant sales are a great way to raise funds for our ongoing projects, but they are so much more. We aim to encourage local residents to take up gardening and hope that’s possible by selling our plants at affordable prices. Our volunteers are also on hand to share their expertise and give customers useful tips. And what better way is there to spend a sunny Saturday?
“Thanks to everyone who donated and to our many customers. Hope to see you again soon.”
Another sale is being planned for June.
