Making words with plants

Making words and designs  from plants fascinates  the public as it’s something few people do in their own gardens. The most famous  example  is  Edinburgh’s floral  clock which is known worldwide. In North Berwick  East Lothian council gardeners annually   commemorate a local organisation this time  Rotary. Most bedding plants don’t work as they are too tall or floppy.  The words use Pyrethrum Golden Moss and other parts use succulents such as Echeverias  and Senecios. Incorporating some coloured sand reduces  the number  of plants needed and helps access for maintenance. However  you have to watch as a local cat sees it as a giant litter tray!
