The Big Bulb Plant and Eden Project are encouraging communities nationwide to get together and plant spring flowering bulbs in October and November to brighten up their surroundings.
The first 50 communities to register will receive a free box of mixed flowering spring bulbs to get their community plant started.
This spring, over 100 communities were involved; planting lilies to flower in time for cutting and decorating tables at Eden Project’s Big Lunch on 5 June 2011. Last year, The Big Bulb Plant, in conjunction with Eden and Rotary Thanks For Life campaign, was launched in Trafalgar Square, and attracted thousands of consumers.
