are continuing work on the West Park in and are putting plans in place to restore the crocus displays.

A spokesperson for said:

Following the Road World Championships last September, and some of the highest rainfall levels experienced for 50 years, we are on planting some 60,000 crocus bulbs on West Park in .

We have completed the programme of works on the Stray, so now is a great opportunity to take advantage of the optimum ground conditions.

These bulbs will add to the existing 8,000,000 crocus bulbs we believe to have been planted over the years on the Stray through our ongoing programme. And will further complement Harrogate’s floral offering that attracts visitors from all over the world every year.

We have already liaised with community groups and volunteers to plant the bulbs in late October / early November but this will be very much depend on COVID-19 restrictions at the time.

  1. Please can you plant some along York Place, there seems to be flocks of pidgeons that eat the shoots of the young plants but usually only the yellow shoots! There one day, gone the next!
