FLOWER fanatics are in for an ever-growing treat at the National Grid plant sale on Saturday (June 4)

Over 100 plants will be up for grabs – following the closure of the long-standing Solihull office.

The lease on the branch – which has stood tall in Solihull for over 20 years – has expired and is not expected to be renewed.

As a result of the sudden closure, a number of employees are due to move to other offices in and around the borough.

Event Organiser, Peter Hughes said: “We have organised the sale because we will shortly be closing our office at 31 Homer Road with staff relocating to our other sites in the town.”

Flower lovers will be able to get their green-fingered hands on a range of plants – which all include a ceramic pot.

Peter added: “The sale is part of our commitment to minimising waste and supporting local communities.

“Also, hopefully the plants that we’ve enjoyed for so long will be able to put down their roots in new homes very soon.”

All money collected will be donated to St Mary’s Birmingham Hospice and match funded by National Grid.

The plant sale will take place between 10am until 3pm at National Grid’s Solihull office, 31 Homer Road.
