|Watch these spaces and see them bloom|
|Remember to visit Queens Park Maryborough on Remembrance Day (11 November) because Council parks staff are predicting it will be awash with floral colour following extensive planting of annuals in September.
Team leader Marshall Nuttall said staff have planted petunias, cockscomb and celosia in the Judges’ Walk and fairy fountain beds and yellow and orange marigolds around the cenotaph.
“Once the plants are in full flower we can expect a few months of wonderful colour in this top section of the park,” he said.
Council parks staff have also drained and cleaned the Queens Park pond and thinned and pruned the plants in and around the pond.
Summer blooming in the Elizabeth Park Rose Gardens in Kent Street is also expected to be spectacular this summer.
The rose plants were cut right back in July to encourage vigorous growth, the beds were freshly mulched and new name plaques were installed on recycled plastic posts.
