Students Launch Broxtowe’s New ‘Planting Plenty’ Campaign‏

Students from Nottingham Trent University will help launch Broxtowe Borough Council’s new ‘Planting Plenty’ campaign next week at the Walled Garden in Bramcote Hills Park.

The Horticultural students will join Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Susan Bagshaw on Tuesday 23rd February to plant new shrubs, herbaceous plants, summer flowering bulbs and a pleached hornbeam hedge as part of the new campaign to improve the horticultural provision in the Council’s parks, open spaces and other green spaces.

Other ‘Planting Plenty’ initiatives will include bulbs, wildflower and annual displays along roadsides as well as more traditional formal plantings in parks and open spaces.

Volunteers and community groups are encouraged to get involved wherever possible to help make Broxtowe a great place where people enjoy living, working and spending leisure time.

The Planting Plenty campaign is a follow on from the 100,000th tree imitative which saw the 100,000th new tree planted in the Borough at Jubilee Park in Eastwood earlier this month.

Residents who think their favourite local space would be improved with additional planting are encouraged to contact the Council directly.

For more information, please contact Broxtowe Borough Council on 0115 917 3507, email or visit
