Out With The Old In With the New


At this time of year the council removes all the summer bedding plants from the beds, boarders and gardens around Cheltenham and replace them with pansies, polyanthus and wallflowers. This is a massive undertaking and uses many hundreds of plants to ensure winter and spring colour. The majority of plants are raised at the council nursery at Hayden Lane in Cheltenham. In the Long Garden, in front of the Municipal buildings, half a dozen or so gardeners were hard at back breaking work ensuring that Cheltenham remains green and pleasant.

To just see it without knowing what you have told here, I wouldn't know so much work went into the pretty landscaping.

I love how it all looks in the end but I would hate to do all the digging and replanting!!!!

Hi Marley: Thanks for visiting! Love the pics! Especially your autumn shot, and the toadstools. :)

I'm sure the result will be worth all the hard work.
