Delamore has donated 70 trays of plug plants – 6, 000 plants - to the first 70 street or school entries which submitted photos of their street, school garden or community project to the David Domoney-led Cultivation Street project. The trays were a mix of plants including lavender, rosemary, begonia, geranium, petunia, French tarragon and fuchsia.

Delamore supplied an advice sheet with the plants.

Cultivation Street is in its second year. The winning street, chosen from nine regional finalists, receives £10,000 of National Garden Gift Vouchers to share among those taking part. The finalists will each win £500 of National Garden Gift Vouchers. The areas are: Scotland, Wales, East Anglia, the North-East, North-West, Northern Ireland, South-East, South-West and the Midlands. Sub-categories include Inspiration Street, awarded to the street that has come together to look spectacular against the odds; Multiplication Street, to the street with the highest number of consecutive front gardens taking part; Transformation Street, to the street with the most dramatic transformation; Cultivation School; Sustainability & Community Award; Nominator Street; and Commemoration Street for a poppy display. Entry closes on August 31, 2014.
