Perrywood garden centre sponsors Sudbury in Bloom project to help rejuvenate roadside
A family-owned garden centre has lent a helping hand to a community project aimed at instilling more life into the Sudbury roadside.
Perrywood Sudbury announced it has sponsored the creation of a flower bed next to the A134 roundabout by the Esso garage, close to the garden centre’s base in Newton Road, with the donation of spring bulbs.
The project is being delivered as part of Sudbury in Bloom, an ongoing initiative that works to encourage gardeners, voluntary groups and businesses to take pride in the town by helping to improve the local environment.
Centre staff met volunteers last week to hand over the bulbs.
Louise Smith, communications manager for Perrywood Sudbury, said: “Perrywood has already given plants and compost towards the project, and volunteers have been busy planting daffodil bulbs, which will appear in the spring, bringing colour and cheer to the roadside.”
The garden centre has previously supported the scheme by donating a £100 gift voucher to last year’s Great Wheelbarrow competition, in which residents and businesses were tasked with filling up a wheelbarrow with plants, flowers and vegetables.
