The Waitrose store in Marmion Road has long been a supporter of Portsmouth in Bloom. We have benefitted a couple of times from their green token fundraising, and they kindly gave us funds to purchase 1000 tress to be distributed around the city. Some of them are now taking root in our community orchard.
As another business keen to support their local community, Waitrose have been behind Portsmouth in Bloom ever since Southsea Greenhouse had the opportunity to get involved. They are currently displaying a banner in their gardening section, and have entry forms on display in the store so that local residents can go and pick one up.
The help and support of local businesses like Waitrose are crucial to the success of a competiton like Portsmouth in Bloom.
