Linlithgow Seed Potato Day

In February SWT had a presence at Linlithgow’s Seed Potato Day.  Burgh Beautiful and Transition Linlithgow are promoting the use of peat-free compost and calling on gardens to help protect the environment.  From June TL will have a bed in the centre of the town ‘Protecting our Peatlands’.  Do visit the town and see its excellent hanging baskets, all with peat-free compost, and its many colourful and creative barrels and beds.  Burgh Beautiful has taken on all of West Lothian Council planters and beds and is always looking for more volunteers to help add to the wildlife aspects of this historic town.Averil Stewart
