Come see The Herbs!

Bath Parks Department gardeners have been putting the finishing touches to floral displays around the city in time for high summer and – hopefully – high numbers of tourists!

It’s judgement time coming up soon for all those who have entered Bath in Bloom this year and the city itself has a fine record in floral competitions- which you can see recorded on a board at the bottom of the entrance steps into the Parade Gardens – currently full of new flower-filled beds.

The main novelty display this year – in this park beside the River Avon – is ┬áthe children’s television series The Herbs with Bayleaf the gardener, Parsley the lion and Dill the dog all represented in a riot of colour.
