A flower bed near a new roundabout in Bury St Edmunds has been given an attractive spruce up after work by the town’s award-winning horticultural organisation.
Bury in Bloom teamed up with Woolpit Nurseries and CCG Gardeners to improve the bed near the roundabout at Parkway Corner/St Andrew’s Street South.
The organisation, which won a host of awards at this year’s Anglia in Bloom competition, including best overall entry, approached Suffolk County Council (SCC) to improve the area while work was going on to remove the double roundabout.
SCC granted money for the project and Bury-based company Pro-Scape cleared the bed and seeded the area.
The new improved bed will be maintained through the year by CCG Gardeners with seasonal plants from Woolpit Nurseries.

“There will be some seasonal planting, so there will always be something fresh and new in the bed.”
