Our vision is to transform communities: with stunning floral displays that beautify and attract; with bins that help keep Britain tidy and the environment safe; and with seating to encourage people to pause and enjoy!
With the use of Amberol’s special Self-watering System our watering crews now manage with just two visits per week to water planters during the summer. This would compare to daily visits when we had traditional baskets.Read our case studies
In April, local authorities were given new rights to issue on-the-spot fines of up to £150 to people caught littering in public places. For the first time, these fines can now be issued to motorists who throw rubbish from a moving vehicle, if the offending car can be proven to be the source of the litter. At Amberol, our wide range of outdoor recycling bins is designed to help tackle the blight of litter on the streets of the UK and we welcome any efforts to further reduce the problem.
International Dawn Chorus Day which took place in early May is celebrated from the Caribbean to Antarctica, but did you know it all began in Birmingham in 1984 when broadcaster and environmentalist Chris Paines had the unusual idea of inviting guests to a 4am birthday party so everyone could enjoy the dawn chorus together?
Here at Amberol we thoroughly enjoy working in partnership with Britain in Bloom groups and it has been a real treat to watch the BBC2 show, Britain in Bloom and see so many of our self-watering planters used to such creative effect on the series.
Be inventive – plants will grow in almost anything. Sinks, baths, even wellington boots can make quirky containers - although they may not provide ideal growing conditions.
