Bandon’s Spring Flower Display

May 24, 2009

This year we put polyanthas and tulips into all the beds in Bandon for a spring display.  We were fortune to be able to rescue 50% of the plants from Cork City Council last year when they were disposing of their 2008 planting in the city.  We stored the plants in  a garden over the summer and transplated them into the tubs at the end of October.

A big thank you to the Perrotts and to Barry and Mary O’Farrell for sponsoring the daffodils and tulips that we planted!
