Let Strathbungo Flourish!
What grows well in your garden or a neighbour’s?
Which plants do you notice as the seasons change?
The holly trees that punctuate the green streetscape of Pollokshields relate to its motto “Do good while the holly is green”. There are holly trees on nearly every street and this got the Society thinking – is there a plant for Strathbungo?
We know the area was known for growing flowers as crops in the past and we’re researching this but we’d like you to nominate a plant for Strathbungo with the aim of finding one we can all be encouraged to grow in pots, window boxes, back greens or gardens.
We’re hoping to combine this with a community planting project at Bungo In The Back Lanes and distribute seedlings.
We’ve already had one suggestion for Eryngium Alpinum (pictured), described as “A really lovely plant; it is strong, tough and really represents the spirit of the Strathbungo Community.”
