During Saturdays and Sundays a pop-up plant sale is commandeering the Swiss Chalet.

It’ll be open from 10am to 2pm on weekend days until Saturday 11 June. The first plant sale took place on Saturday 21 May.

Bedding plants on offer include Dianthus festival, echium valgare, helianthus sunflower ballad for £2 each.

Hanging baskets made by the Preston City Council parks team will be £5 and tomato and pepper plants are also on sale.

Any money made from the sale of the plants is being invested back into looking after the parks.

Cabinet member for community and environment councillor Robert Boswell said: “It’s a great opportunity for the community to enjoy the park, gain inspiration for their own gardens and support a beautiful resource by buying their plant needs directly from the park.”
