Blue bins bloom

Central Leader - - News -

Blue re­cy­cling bins are go­ing green at the Auck­land Flower Show.

Grow­ing your own gar­den in an old blue re­cy­cling bin could give you the chance to be an ex­hibitor at the Novem­ber show at Alexan­dra Park.

And there is a bonus for the creators of all gar­dens ac­cepted for dis­play – they will be re­funded the cost of their flower show ticket.

Gold, sil­ver and bronze awards will be se­lected, with win­ners re­ceiv­ing a free ticket to the ex­hibitor’s site awards party.

“We want to en­cour­age peo­ple who are pas­sion­ate about gar­den­ing and the flower show to be­come in­volved,” says Auck­land Flower Show gar­dens con­vener Jenny Pullar.

“They’re a per­fect grow­ing medium, and re­ally this is just an­other great use for a bit of plas­tic that’s al­ways been put to great use.”
