A GARDENING group is urging people to support their roots.

Easington Seed Pods wants past and present residents to donate perennial cuttings to transform the look of the area.

Founder Michael Welsh said: “The group aims to make Easington Colliery a better and more colourful place to live by planting perennial plants in the community for all to enjoy.”

Perennials can be divided in the spring or autumn and the group is hoping fellow gardeners will donate to the group so they can be grown and planted in community areas to attract butterflies and bees.

The group uses its allotment and a church to store and grow cuttings and seedlings and is always looking for new plants, volunteers and funding to grow the project.
