Marlborough is a tourist town and the High Street businesses, estate agents and solicitors have actively supported our efforts. A feature of the Town is the magnificent displays staged by our local pubs and cafes. The tubs outside the Polly Tea Rooms look good all year round, planted with sustainable shrubs and underplanted with colourful seasonal bedding plants.
Hanging baskets, tubs and railing planters adorn our streets. The containers, hand made locally from seasoned hardwood, are filled with recycled compost sponsored by Hills. Individual retailers may adopt a sponsored tub or basket and are responsible for watering and feeding and we are gradually introducing more self-watering baskets. We aim for sustainability, using shrubs and perennials for year round interest.
