Greening Grey Castleton

‘Greening Grey Britain’ is one of the themes of Britain in Bloom this year.

We’ve been doing just that with the Castleton Wildflower Garden. This was once a derelict plot of land surrounding an electricity sub-station which we have been converting into a bee and butterfly garden.

The violas going into these containers will be very pleasing for motorists to view as they come into town.
