Spring bulbs lift the spirits and mark the end of winter in our gardens, which is why the Bridport Gardening Club will be giving away up to 2,000 daffodil bulbs for planting in public spaces this autumn.

We would like to thank Groves Nurseries for their support in providing the bulbs to us at cost.

Individuals and groups are invited to put forward places such as grass verges and public spaces (but not roundabouts) where they could plant bulbs which can be enjoyed by the most people.

So please have a look now to see the gaps where you could plant spring bulbs, perhaps along the river valleys.

The campaign has the support of the mayor and town clerk and we will consult with them on the suitability of the suggested sites before giving out the bulbs in the autumn.

Please email bridportgardeningclub@gmail.com with locations (and photographs if possible) of your suggested site for planting.
