Con­test sows seeds in res­i­dents’ imag­i­na­tions

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

OR­GAN­iSER Judy Stevens said the com­pe­ti­tion had re­ceived an ar­ray of en­tries for the un­usual con­tainer cat­e­gory, stand­ing the vil­lage in good stead for its East Mid­lands in Bloom de­but.

She said: “We have had more than 70 en­tries al­ready and still count­ing.

“it cer­tainly does seem to have trig­gered the imag­i­na­tion, and we have had con­tain­ers planted in ob­jects as di­verse as a bone bird’s nest, a wine cooler and per­haps most un­likely of all, a sofa down at Pren­tices Re­cy­cling Yard.”

All age-groups have been bit­ten by the plant­ing bug with Cubs plant­ing their sweet peas in sweet jars.

Judg­ing is due to take place on Fri­day evening, when Lady Cholme­ley from Eas­ton Walled Gar­dens will se­lect the best chil­dren’s en­try, the best en­try from a lo­cal busi­ness and a best in­di­vid­ual prize.
