Burnham's Marine Cove to give away plants as it prepares for winter

Work is underway to prepare Burnham-On-Sea's Marine Cove gardens for the winter.

Volunteers are being sought to help remove bedding plants in the seafront gardens on Saturday 27th October between 9am and midday, when many of the plants will also be available to be taken away.

Community gardener Jacqui Strong explained to "Many people have enquired what happens to the plants. Well, they usually get disposed of, but if anyone would like to come to the gardens on October 27th between these times and take some of the geraniums away and over the winter for their own use, they would be more than welcome. There are some Salvias with lovely purple flowers still that may be of use for pressing."

She asked for volunteers to come along and help in the work and added that Marine Cove is also seeking helpers to put the next round of bedding plants in during the first week of November. To help, contact Mrs Strong on 01278 436420.
