Wild flowers will be springing up around the port of Lowestoft.

It comes after ABP became the first port operator to join Kew Gardens' Grow Wild Campaign – meaning port teams across the country are now planting more than 150 kits of wildflower seeds on vacant land across the company's network of 21 ports.

Alan Tinline, ABP Head of Environment, who has been co-ordinating the company's participation in the project, said: 'Taking part in this initiative feels natural, as high standards of environmental care and biodiversity awareness are a way of life for us, as 18 of the ports are in or next to nature conservation areas. Lucia Firman, Technical Document Controller at the Port of Lowestoft, said: 'Planting up the marina and office at the Port of Lowestoft has been fun and we are happy to be doing our bit to support the environment. Throughout April, we have planted five kits of seeds and have even put up several colourful bee homes.'
