Hanging baskets set to brighten our day

Residents are being offered the chance to add a bit of colour and brightness to homes and communities this summer.

Hanging baskets (Alan)

Swansea Council's parks team are preparing the way for the return of hanging baskets to homes and communities next month.

And residents who've not yet ordered theirs can safely add some colour to their homes knowing that deliveries will be made within Coronavirus social distancing rules.

The council planted its crop of hanging basket plants and flowers before the Coronavirus pandemic happened and they've been looked after ever since at Home Farm by the parks team.

Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Environment and Infrastructure said: "It's difficult for everyone when, despite improving weather, the rules of social distancing mean you can only exercise close to home once a day.

"However, our hanging baskets are still growing and there's still some available to those who want to add a little splash of colour to their homes. They could help raise the spirits, especially among those who are self-isolating.

"Those who've ordered a basket or want to order one can be assured we are taking all reasonable steps to ensure they are delivered within the social distancing rules."

Deliveries are due to start in May, residents and businesses who have yet to order still have until the end of April to do so.

"The service has many repeat customers because of the quality of the baskets and displays we produce so we've already had hundreds of orders for this year. But there's still room for more."

 "We always get a huge level of interest in the the hanging basket schemes because, apart from the sheer enjoyment, they are good for the environment and insect-life as well."
