Forking out

GARDENERS are being invited to fork out for bulbs — and help charity at the same time.

Heighley Gate Nursery and Garden Centre near Morpeth is selling packets of 30 Crocus Barr’s Purple from Taylors Bulbs until November for £2.99.

And 60p from every packet sold will go to Greenfingers, which creates gardens at children’s hospices.

The species is easy to grow and is ideal for pots, borders and lawns.
