A group of volunteer gardeners have been given a second chance to make a piece of Boston bloom thanks to help from a town seed company.

Boston Greenscapers was disappointed last week to find that an area of land they had planted with wildflowers between John Adams Way and Boston Grammar School had been trampled.

Greenscaper Rachel Lauberts said: “This year we went for a wildflower arrangement, and once the flowers were dead they would have reseeded themselves, but it basically got trampled - someone or some people went through it and flattened the whole lot so we had to take it all out.”

However, shortly after a Facebook post, Boston Seeds came to the rescue with a donation of new wildflower seeds for the area - and Mrs Lauberts is hoping these ones will be allowed to flower and reseed themselves.

She said: “‘It’s disappointing that someone would want to spoil something that is for the benefit of the Boston community.

“We are very grateful for the continued support from Boston Seeds in our quest to brighten up Boston and would like to thank them again for their generous support.”

Boston Seeds has supported the Greenscapers since they began in 2012 and was the first company to donate seeds to the group.

Andrew Wallis, of Boston Seeds. said: “We are pleased to be helping the Boston Greenscapers again and support the local area. We donated seeds to kick the project off a couple of years ago and look forward to supporting again in the future.”
