Members of the North Laine Traders Association met in Pelham Square, Brighton on Wednesday 29 June to put together 20 herb planters for their City in Bloom displays.
Peter Stocker, Secretary of the NLTA, said, "We decided on herbs instead of flowers, as the herbs will be longer lasting and easier to maintain than flowers - and they smell nice!"
City in Bloom is a council initiative to improve the look of the city making it more attractive to residents and visitors alike. Businesses are encouraged to display hanging baskets, planters, or even Japanese style gardens of stones and gravel. Competition entries are judged during the month of July with a prize-giving evening held in September.
The planting project in the North Laine received support from the council, local traders, and residents of Pelham Square, and the efforts of the North Laine Community Association representative, Gabrielle Villermet, who worked on both planting and distributing the planters to their various sites in the North Laine.
