A Boston based seed manufacturer has donated thousands of bulbs to a resident led horticultural partnership to aid in bringing more colour to the town centre.

Boston Seeds, based at Langrick ne ar Boston, donated in excess of 5,000 daffodil bulbs and several boxes of hyacinths to the Boston in Bloom partnership last week.

The award winning partnership, who recently announced their success in obtaining another gold medal at the regional East Midlands in Bloom competition, is made up of local residents who take pride in the town centre, and have involvement in several projects around the borough, including the Boston Buoy Trail, Mosaic Walls, Central Park borders, Haven Bridge’s Wildflower Meadow and many more.

Alison Fairman, Chair of the partnership, said: “The Bloom partnership are very grateful for the generous donation from Boston Seeds, which we received last week. The bulbs provided are being planted at various locations around the borough and, come Spring, will provide a stunning display of vivid colour throughout the town centre.

The Golden Daffodils will be an appropriate to commemorate our sixth gold award announcement in the RHS East Midlands in Bloom competition, despite such a difficult and turbulent couple of years.”

George Wallis, Commercial Director at Boston Seeds, said: “We are always pleased to support local organisations and projects that make a positive contribution to the residents of Boston. 

We have been supporting Boston In Bloom for a number of years to enhance the local landscape in a town with a rich heritage in horticulture and agriculture. 

Boston in Bloom is run entirely by volunteers and benefits hugely from donations and support from local businesses, so we are delighted to contribute around 5000 daffodil bulbs to plant this autumn for a spectacular spring display.”
