Planting programme 2023

Linenhall St Planter and BBC Parklet

In May 2023, the BID commissioned a local gardener to refresh our planting on Linenhall Street, Ormeau Avenue and the Linenhall parklet. Planting was specifically chosen with durability and sustainability in mind, adding greenery and pops of colour.

Flax Fields

Our Flax Fields planters were moved to Blackstaff Square in 2022 and were replanted during early Spring 2023. Flax Fields provides seating, planting and an additional bin, creating a vibrant space for office workers to enjoy lunch al fresco. This installation is maintained by our dedicated Clean Team.

Planter at Etap Hotel

As part of our clean up and regenerative work on Dublin Road, planting was installed in the brick planter beside Etap Hotel, creating a cleaner, greener and more welcoming space for guests arriving to enjoy the city.

Linenhall Street Parklet

Colourful, artificial planting was installed on our larger Linenhall Street parklet by a local florist. This area is becoming more and more popular due to its proximity to Snax, Urban Retreat and Coco, making it the perfect spot to enjoy lunch outside. This durable planting and colourful LQ vinyls create a sense of place.

Belfast in Bloom

Our Belfast in Bloom planters were installed in June, along Great Victoria Street and throughout the district. These flower towers were funded by the BID, and installed/maintained by Belfast City Council
