Letter: What a mess New Milton’s ‘wreck’ is compared to Lymington
I’ve just been walking around Woodside Park in Lymington where there is a beautiful display of flowers, borders are immaculate, trimmed trees, not a blade of grass out of place.
Then I come to New Milton ‘wreck’ – what a mess. We have one basket and one trough of flowers, oh and Jubilee Arch, no display or flower beds – why?
The borders are a disgrace: loads of ivy and weeds, also self-seeded sycamore and beech trees.
One of the borders has Carex pendula which becomes a troublesome weed left to reseed itself, which is what has happened. The council has left it to invade everywhere – an easy solution not to bother!
Why has the rec been neglected and Woodside tended? Are we just the poor relations?
