Potty ideas

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY -

I DID some shop­ping to­day in St Marys, be­tween Phillip St and the rail­way sta­tion.

I was shocked to see what is hap­pen­ing with the so­called street beau­ti­fi­ca­tion.

Some time ago I no­ticed flow­ers were planted in the flower boxes, but since they were marigolds and sweet Alice I was won­der­ing how long they would last, think­ing they needed wa­ter and were eas­ily pulled out.

I was also won­der­ing if they were planted into planter boxes or in pots.

To­day, my fears were proven right. All the flow­ers were dead, pots pulled out of the mulch, flow­ers pulled out of the pots and all just a big mess.

I’d love to know who came up with such a ridicu­lous idea of plant­ing lit­tle pots among some mulch and no one to take care of these flow­ers. Would it not have been bet­ter to plant slow­grow­ing shrubs in­stead? What­ever is planted in these planters needs wa­ter­ing – who is meant to take care of these flow­ers and shrubs and why are we wast­ing so much money on such ideas?

Any­one with a bit of sense can see that this will not work as we now have more un­sightly mess in Queen St. Kathy Pon­grac, Ropes Cross­ing
