‘Floating ecosystem’ for greening Nottingham’s canals

The plants float on anchored pontoons, bringing some colour to the canalside and attracting more birds and bugs.

The council said:

‘We used some of the funding we bid for from the Government’s Transforming Cities fund to this week add some ‘floating ecosystems’ to our city centre canal with our friends Canal and River Trust.
