Re-Leaf Day was a blooming hit!

Smiles are blossoming across the gardening indus- try, as the fi rst Garden Re- Leaf Day last month proved a hit. Over 500 garden cen- tres participated with special events to get the gardening season off to a grand start, raising funds for children’s hospice garden charity Greenfi ngers.

Events like school plant- ing projects, garden makeo- vers, and fun days, sports, fancy dress, quizzes and raffl es happened as garden centres, suppliers and en-

thusiasts got into the Gar- den Re-Leaf spirit.

The initiative, to engage gardening novices and ex- perts, is seen as gardening’s equivalent of Comic Relief. Early indications are that thousands of pounds were raised for Greenfi ngers, the charity that creates magi- cal gardens for children’s hospices nationwide. With some initiatives still ongo- ing, the fi nal sum raised is due to be announced at the Garden Industry Manufac- turers’ Association (GIMA)

Awards Dinner this summer. Garden Re-Leaf’s found-

er, Hillview Garden Centre CEO Boyd Douglas Davies said: “We’ve been com- pletely blown away by the country-wide response for the very fi rst Garden Re- Leaf. It has really helped to get people, young and old, interested in their gardens right from the fi rst days of spring.” To see a summary of the events that took place local- ly, visit www.gardenreleaf.


Gardeners urged to lock away garden tools

Telford Police are warning gardeners to lock away gar- den tools to prevent bur- glars using the equipment to break into homes. The warning comes af- ter police received reports where offenders used garden forks to break into homes. The garden equipment is believed to have been left ly- ing in people’s gardens and then used by suspects to force their way into people’s homes. Police are asking people to lock their garden tools away to prevent any similar incidents. A Telford Police spokes- woman said: “During the past couple of weeks there have been a few dwelling burglaries where offenders

have used garden equip- ment, namely garden forks, as a tool to gain entry into the property. “Police would like to warn householders to lock away their garden tools when they aren’t in use to prevent them

from being used as a bur- glary tool. “With Spring arriving, people will be working in their gardens a lot more, so it’s vital they heed this advice and keep their property safe and secure.”
