Crewe Town Council is responsible for the extensive floral displays throughout the town, including their planting and maintenance.
These displays include:
- pole planters
- raised planters
- hanging baskets
- railing troughs
- displays on the Market Hall
The displays are planned almost a year in advance, when schemes are designed and plants ordered. Looking after the displays takes time and effort and the Crewe Town Rangers are also involved by adopting unloved flower beds and maintaining new planters.
We are currently working to develop an improved winter scheme to brighten up the town centre during the winter months.
Our environment and sustainability
We aim to use sustainable planting schemes wherever possible to provide interest year after year with shrubs, perennial flowers and herbs - which also help to keep our bee and insect populations happy!
Look out for spring and wild flowers appearing in borders and grassy areas where bulb and seed planting has been taking place.
We invest (where possible) in self-watering systems, however, during hot spells even those displays require additional visits.
We are grateful to the members of the community who play their part and care for unloved spaces and maintain them for all to enjoy. If you would like some assistance with community planting within the town boundaries, please get in touch at: [email protected].
