Resort seeking Bloom success

THE seeds have been sown towards Newquay’s path to glory in a prestigious national horticulture competition.

Newquay in Bloom arranged for the replacements for two cordylines to be planted at the piazza to start its campaign to ready the town for entry in the 2017 Britain in Bloom coastal town category. 

Kim Parish, of Landscapes of Distinction, undertook the planting, which was funded by grant money from Newquay Town Council.

Newquay in Bloom volunteers have already been busy taking an audit of more than 30 projects maintained throughout the town to ensure that they will meet the stringent horticultural standards of the competition, which will be judged in August.

Bloom secretary Lesley Friel said: “The planting of two mature cordylines is the start of Newquay in Bloom’s campaign to ready the town for entry in the Britain in Bloom competition. 

“It was necessary to replace two cordylines which were part of the original planting for the piazza scheme but which had died and been removed.”

Newquay in Bloom would welcome anyone interested in helping in any way to improve the townscape. For more information visit its website www.newquayin or the Facebook page.
