Pick your own pansies.

Katrin Eder, responsible for environment, energy and transport in Mainz, comes up with some good ideas.

Last year, they planted veges instead of the ubiquitous bedding plants in one patch and it worked out quite well by all accounts.

We’re rapidly approached the changing of the guard as far as the mass plantings on the Schillerplatz go and the council is encouraging folk to take what they want in the way of pansies before they end up on the Great Compost Heap in the Sky.

To say that they’re past their best is an understatement, but – hey – FOR FREE?
