Wasteland will become sensory garden
A SENSORY garden is to be created on a piece of wasteland in Portishead town centre.
Portishead in Bloom has managed to secure permission to plant out a piece of land next to the town's library at Horatio House.
Over the years the land, which is owned by developers Persimmon, has become an eyesore and a dumping ground for rubbish.
Volunteers are now drawing up a plan for the site and plan to include the garden in this year's South West in Bloom competition. The area will be planted with sweet smelling plants such as lavender and rosemary.

Portishead in Bloom chairman, Sandy Tebbutt, said: "We have wanted to cultivate this piece of land for some time. Currently it looks a hideous mess and is used by people as somewhere to discard their rubbish.
"We hope to start work on it as soon as we can and are currently drawing up some plans for the site which we will discuss with Persimmon.
"Initially we had hoped to plant it out as a jubilee project.
"Not only will it tidy up a messy area but it will also provide a nice facility for people in the town who have limited vision"
