A GREEN group is after volunteers to help with a celebration of all things floral and vegetable tomorrow.

Rotherham In Root, a community group encouraging people to grow their own, will be at the Garden Lovers’ Fair in Rotherham town centre from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

The group recently raised £201.35 for Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity’s Purple Butterfly Appeal with three plant sales, as well as 
a delivery of sunflowers, cucumbers, peppers, and chilli plants last month.

Volunteers are now being sought to help sell sunflowers at the event tomorrow, the event will also feature demonstrations from The One Show’s gardening presenter Christine Walkden and globe-trotting flower arranger Jonathan Moseley.
