Baskets add a splash of colour

Have your say

LOCAL horticultural expert John Naylor has been named Springfields Outlet Shopping’s Supplier of the Year thanks to his magnificent hanging basket creations which are brightening up the centre.

There are 90 hanging baskets across the site, creating a beautiful look around the shopping area.

John, who lives in Spalding, was a self-employed bulb grower before becoming semi-retired. He has created baskets which are bursting with colourful plants and flowers including fuchsias, bacopa, trailing petunias, non-stop begonias, illumination begonias and blue and white lobelia ricardii. They each have a geranium in the centre.

The flowers are combined to create two eye-catching looks – azure combines with pale pink and hot pink matched up with lime.

The baskets are part of Springfields’ entry for East Midlands in Bloom.
