The wife of Colchester’s MP has slammed guerrilla gardeners who planted flowers in council beds then left them to die.Eh...?
Well, it seems it stems from a council decision to grass over a fifth of their roadside beds to save money. A couple of 'guerilla gardeners' came in and planted flowers in them. Free flowers, free planting! You'd think the council would be happy, no?
Keen gardener Mrs Russell said: “If there is one thing worse than flowers not being planted, it is people who say they are interested in flowers allowing them to die through wilful neglect.”What, you wanted them to water and weed too, you ungrateful cow?
Seems to me you should be asking your husband (Bob Russell - no, sadly, not this one...) why the council didn't make more of the beds themselves once they'd been planted up...
