Each autumn, members of Crosspool Forum and local residents plant spring bulbs in some of our public spaces and verges in order to brighten up the community with flowers in the spring.

We’ve ordered some more bulbs and want your suggestions for places in Crosspool where we could consider planting them. So if you know a bit of land or area that would benefit from a splash of colour then let us know by filling in the form below. We need your ideas by the end of September.

If you’re interested in lending an hour or two of your time to help plant the bulbs in October then look out for details on here.
