In the photo there is still the old ticket machine- Sholing used to have on of those.(permit machine)

Looked on Google and found this image don't know if the plants are still there?

 Few flowers

Here's a website where you could volunteer or just comment on the station you could say what you want to them if the station needs more plants.

Another picture Millbrook station

Nice big waiting room back then they did like large waiting rooms, Shame the waiting area does not look that sheltered now be a bit cold with no sides.

Success Rain. Great table.

You're not the only one with 'wash out' planters/baskets this year. In my case it was my dahlia pots, the sweetpeas & all the vegs!!

Next yr nemaslug again! J.

Hello plumstrudle I had no luck with sweet peas, last year loads of sweet peaS.

I use nemaslug not cheap but does work sometimes but a lot of rain might have wasted my first lot, made it a bit watered loged for them to work most of veg got eaten by slugs they like the wet weather. Not fair

It was raining or hot sun this year, I guess you painted the shed in the sun - it must have dryed fast and that might be why paint peeling already.

What colour did you paint the shed?
