Bag yourselves some Free Begonias
Local people who are interested in ‘over wintering’ begonias to use in their gardens next Spring should contact Congleton Town Council by Friday 21st October.
The Town Council is in the process of stripping out the summer bedding from the park and roundabouts and troughs. The begonias are good quality and if properly dried out and stored over the winter should be good to re-use next Spring.
Congleton Town Council’s Streetscape Manager, Ruth Burgess said: “The Town Council hasn’t got the time or space to dry out the plants and store in the dark over the winter to reuse next year. We would normally compost the used plants, but if organisations, groups or individuals would like to reuse them we will happily give them a free bag of the plants. Initially we will limit it to one bag per household on a first come first served basis, but if anyone would like more plants if they let me know I will let them know if we have any left.”
People have until Friday 21 October to request a free bag. Priority will be given to Congleton residents, organisations or businesses. Tel 01260 270350 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact details.
