When Terry first started working for Norwich City Council in September 1976, fibreglass Amberol Up The Pole Baskets were used during the summer months at Norwich Yacht Station. From the 1990's Norwich purchased Barrier and Hanging Baskets and Planters from Amberol using at various locations around the city centre and on highway railings.

 

During the early 2000's Amberol launched a national calendar photographic competition inviting users and the general public to enter photos of Amberol products, the winner received 1000 worth of products, second 500 and third 250.

During their travels and holidays Terry and Mirelle come across many Amberol baskets, containers, litter bins and other products, we take photos of Amberol products and showing plants that have been used to create a display or theme can be seen under the OUT AND ABOUT section, we aim to show photos of containers and floral features under each place heading as our website develops and we visit.

 

We are always interested to see trends and plants being used to create successful floral displays around Britain, noting the plants used for future ideas to use in displays we get involved with or asked advice what to use.

 

We particularly study the plants used in containers, types, colours, foliage  and aim to gauge their maintenance, impact, location and most important performance, At Norwich Terry works closely with Hockering Nursery who have been contract supplying Barrier, Hanging Baskets and Containers to Norwich City Council for many years.

 

We hope our photos help show your community what can be achieved, ideas and plants that might be considered to be grown and used in containers we aim to develop a BASKETS AND CONTAINERS webpage in the near future.
