In 2010, Rothwell in Bloom took over most of this car park because the local authority, Leeds CC Car Parks Department wouldn't spend any money on looking after the flower beds that lie between the various car park bays. The reason, why because it's free, so no income, no expenditure. Simple!
So this is the state of one of these car park beds where we are not working.
But contrast that today in the same car park entrance bed where we have started to grow flowers & shrubs, plant bulbs, and today, I saw delphiniums growing in the car park bed.
The bed the other side of the entrance close to the Working Mens' club has flowers in it, lots of chickweed still and the bulbs have now had it, but it certainly looks much better than with a load of dried up sprayed weeds. Rothwell in Bloom makes a difference.
