Gardening event set up in town

PEOPLE with green fingers can make their own hanging baskets to brighten up their homes at a workshop taking place in Hartlepool today.

Stranton Nursery in Hartlepool is holding the Sensational Summer Baskets activity.

It will take place at the nursery in Tanfield Road this afternoon between 1-3pm.

Participants will be given a demonstration by an expert before getting the chance to have a go and make their own basket.

A range of colourful bedding plants will be available to put in them.

The cost of the workshop is £15 which includes all materials and plants.

People going to the event have been asked by organisers to wear old clothes and take along gardening gloves and a trowel if you have them.
