Southend gardening experts hosting open weekend

First published in News

GARDEN lovers can pick up tips to spruce up their own floral displays from Southend Council's gardening team on Saturday and Sunday.

An open weekend is being held at the Park Nursery in Wakering Road, Southend, where horticulture experts will be on hand offer hints and ideas for people to take home to their gardens.

Visitors will also be able to buy hanging baskets, plants and flowers from the venue which acts as the cultivation centre for the council's parks around the borough.

Doors will be open during both days between 10am and 4pm.

A more accessible location would be the large space outside Southend Central station, then the council horticultural team could give seminars on how to chop down trees and the best way to concrete over green spaces.

Well when you look around Southend it would be nice to see how they get all the various flower displays to look so good. I'm still trying but fail so many times.

How they have ruined the area outside Vic station, is deplorable

The parks team do a fantastic job in making the parks & borders around the town look beautiful all year round.

They have nothing to do with the morons that decided to pave over their previous hard work (e.g. the Victoria Circus roundabout).

I often go to the parks nurseries to buy flowers & plants, they're really good quality, yet very cheap. A recommended visit if you're a keen gardener.
