Cromwell gardens to get spring refresh
The gardens at the Cromwell Mall and Big Fruit Reserve will be getting a refresh from about the middle of next week (10 August 2022).
The Central Otago District Council Parks and Recreation team will be removing most of the plants in these gardens because they’re not thriving.
In some situations, plants like hebes have short life spans, and for others the soil is causing issues, so the hebes, carpet rose and viburnum will be removed and replaced with a mixture of shrubs to provide seasonal interest and an overall freshening up of the area.
Any sites not completed this spring will be scheduled for next autumn.
