Track 12 Growing Plants

Credit line: John Belton talks about growing bedding plants with his family.


Interviewee: He had two, I think one was about twelve by eight, but I can’t remember the other one. I think it was a bit smaller. Because we used to grow boxes and boxes of bedding plants and then sell them.

Interviewer: Where did you sell those then?

Interviewee: Oh anywhere. Where my Grandfather was working. He used to sell them to people where he was working in the gardens. Then we had regular people. Possibly some of them used to put a notice up in the shops. Always out to make a shilling somewhere!
