GARDENING co-operative the Southsea Greenhouse has welcomed its 200th member.

Southsea’s Ali Flower, 31, has joined the greenhouse as a shareholder and volunteer.

Ms Flower said: ‘I love Southsea and I think the garden is a fantastic idea.

‘It’s a beautiful space to visit and the service it provides is one of the many things which make Portsmouth special.’

The greenhouse encourages people to grow their own fruit, vegetables and flowers or buy them locally, benefiting the environment by reducing ‘food miles’.
