With Mother’s Day fast approaching, a wide range of beautiful plants and gifts are now available at Leeds City Council’s Redhall plant nursery.



Based in north Leeds, Redhall produces over three million plants per year, which add a sea of colour to the city’s parks, roundabouts, flower beds, school grounds and many other locations across the city that support 'Leeds In Bloom'.



A variety of fantastic plants can be purchased at the Redhall shop as part of the countdown to Mother’s Day on Sunday, along with other presents including compost, containers, shrubs, hanging baskets, bird food and feeders and tools.



Redhall is open seven days a week at the following times: 9.00am to 3.00pm.



Councillor Mark Dobson, executive board member for the environment said:



"There are a fantastic variety of plants available at Redhall, and I would urge anyone seeking inspiration for Mother’s Day to pay us a visit and see what we have to offer.



"We produce over three million plants in our nursery per year, and with other brilliant gifts also available at Redhall, this is a great chance to purchase a really lovely Mother’s Day present."
