Euroflor displays widely praised

GLOUCESTER City Council, working in partnership with Amey, has had great success with the planting of Euroflor urban flower meadows and World War One poppy mixes.
Now they are planning a dramatic scheme for the four-year period of centenary war commemorations, following wide praise from the public and neighbouring councils.
In the Abbey Ward area of the city, where this year’s Euroflor poppy mixes are in full bloom, Paul Sutlow, senior grounds maintenance supervisor for Amey, and his team – working in partnership with Gloucester City Council and Gloucester City Homes – have designed a fabulous garden for the public to enjoy.
The design is in keeping with the WWI theme and will be completed in three phases. During phase one, initially designed by Anthony Pyle, a grounds maintenance supervisor, there will be a number of pathways built to epitomise the trenches.
Long grass sections will signify ‘No Man’s Land’ along with a flowing brook which will symbolise the opposing trench and passage of time.
Phase two will represent the ‘Dig for Victory’ concept where native fruiting trees will be planted to form a community orchard. The plan for phase three is to plant rows of mixed native broadleaf trees
Andria Backhaus, Rigby Taylor local authority area sales manager, told The Landscaper, “We are delighted at the success Paul and his team have had. Euroflor poppy mixes have met with great success since their launch for the World War One centenary.”
