With all the numbers from yesterday's budget in mind, David Coton has been looking through some statistics in relation to the horticultural industry.
Have you seen our 80 Hanging Baskets on the High Street, at the Shopping Mall in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, England?
With all the talk of the death of the high street, it's nice to be able to bring a bit of colour to shoppers each year with our hanging baskets, which adorn the Sutton Coldfield Shopping Mall.
Hall's Garden Centre supply 80 winter hanging baskets in February and 80 summer hanging baskets in June to the Sutton Coldfield Shopping Mall (formerly known as Gracechurch shopping centre) each year.
"Over the years, we have supplied well over 1,000 winter, spring and summer hanging baskets and topiary balls to the shopping centre to provide all year round interest and colour". David Hall
The winter baskets are currently looking at their best right now, covered in yellow, blue, pink primula flowers.
The summer baskets are filled with an array of summer bedding plants including Lobelia, Geraniums, Fuschias, Begonias, Lotus, Bacopa, Verbena, Brachycome plus lots more. It is a total array of colour, designed to be a long lasting display, with a wide range of flowers and you wil be able to see them next month.
All the baskets are fitted with an automatic irrigation system to keep them watered and reduce maintenance.
The next time you are in the shopping mall, remember to have a look up see a little bit of natural colour amongst the crowds.
We have a wide selection of hanging baskets and bedding plants in stock during late spring and early summer at our Sutton Coldfield garden centre.

As a yearly visitor to the Hampton Court Flower Show, I'll be enjoying much of the show's inspiration and fabulous florals this year, but I'm equally excited to see the fantastic gardening range provided by Forest Garden Products.
