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.
