Flowers out, spring bulbs in the ground for downtown St. Catharines planters

It seems like it’s been a bit of an arduous task but the spring bulbs replacing the yanked flowers in St. Catharines’ down town planters should be wrapped up this week.

Or at least it seems to someone who is not a horticulturist. For starters, yanking the flower is the easy task. We saw two Public Works employees pull them out at a rate of one for every 15 seconds or so.

But when they were done by the middle of last week, the job of replacing them takes longer.

For starters, the city has had rototillers at work for the past week, preparing the plots for replanting.

Beyond that, planting just plain takes longer. One employee was meticulously lining them up on the Westchester-St. Paul St W plot last Friday. Going down the entire downtown St. Paul St planters? That’s some time-consuming work.
