A Suffolk town will be hoping to impress visiting Anglia in Bloom judges next week.
Children from St Mary’s Primary School have been perfecting their own horticultural haven for Woodbridge’s entry in the 2013 competition.
The pupils researched types of wheat, selecting the best for their garden, and studied the water harnessing power of the Tide Mill on the Deben. They will soon harvest the wheat and grind it to make bread.
Meanwhile, in Elmurst Park, a floral town crest includes the Omar Khayyam rose.
The Islamic scholar was an influence on Woodbridge’s own Edward Fitzgerald, who translated his poetry.
The Friends of Fen Meadow are also getting attention with their efforts to maintain its horticultural heritage.
