60,000 crocus bulbs have started to be planted on West Park Stray in Harrogate.

These bulbs will add to the existing 8,000,000 crocus bulbs the borough council believe to have been planted over the years on the Stray through an ongoing programme.

Councillor Andrew Paraskos, Harrogate Borough Council’s cabinet member for environment, waste reduction and recycling, said: “Now that we have completed the programme of works on West Park Stray, it is a great opportunity to take advantage of the optimum ground conditions and begin our bulb planting programme.”

“I’d like to thank the community groups who have volunteered to help us plant the bulbs as these crocuses will further complement Harrogate’s floral offering that attracts visitors from all over the world every year.”
