Green-fingered volunteers have been at work at the Tollgate triangle junction in Bury St Edmunds to ensure the ‘river of flowers’ is as vibrant as ever this year.

The floral display featuring the blue Geranium Rozanne was designed by Adrian Bloom, of Bressingham Gardens in Norfolk, and planted by a team of Bury in Bloom volunteers in April last year.

Bury in Bloom co-ordinator Melanie Lesser said the scheme should be even more eye-catching this year as the plants will have matured.

She said: “The planting has enhanced the area and we have received many complements from Bury St Edmunds residents.” Mr Bloom, who was out with volunteers yesterday, said: “It is vital to give the plants a prune at this time of the year to ensure a good display in the summer months.”
