Work has started on replanting the flower beds at Tudor Street and Castle Street Car Parks
Abergavenny Town Council has been awarded a Heritage Fund and Welsh Government Local Places for Nature grant. Part of this funding is for replanting the beds in front of Tudor Street and Castle Street car parks.
Updating the planted borders is a joint initiative between Abergavenny Town Council and Monmouthshire County Council Grounds Team. MCC has already made a start on removing the existing planting after which the soil will be improved and the beds replanted with pollinator friendly plants in February/March next year.
Sarah Price Landscapes, an Abergavenny based company has been engaged by the Town Council to design the colourful new borders and select the plants. The new planting will be low maintenance perennials with a focus on pollinator friendly native species. The plants will create a bright and colourful border which will be a welcome change from the existing which is dominated by cotoneaster. These improvements will contribute to the overall appearance of the town and we hope will be welcomed by residents and visitors as well as the Wales in Bloom judge!
