Station Projects – Scarborough Platform

Since 2004, Hutton Cranswick in Bloom has  worked in partnership with the Train Operating Company to improve Hutton Cranswick Station Gardens.

In 2009, following the redevelopment of the engine shed into residential properties, the In Bloomers, in agreement with Northern Rail, took over responsibility for the whole garden area of the Scarborough platform.

Sedum bed

In 2010, following Yorkshire in Bloom guidelines for sustainable planting, the large semi-circular bed at the entrance to the Scarborough platform, was redesigned as a scree bed displaying Sedums. Previously the area had contained a number of barrels.

Barrels are removed and Sedums prepared for planting
