Southport botanic gardens nursery PR9

Location: UK » North West » PR

The nursery provides employment for local people growing flowers which are sold to members of the public, used in the parks and used by the council across the town. The move, which will save £100k, will make the manager who has worked there since age 15 redundant just a few months after he won awards for his flowers at the flower show. The flowers will now be outsourced, it is not known at what cost.
