Dumfries and Galloway council is asking for your help.
As part of the Council’s savings measures, it has reduced the number of flower bedding areas that it maintains across the region.
The following beds will be affected:
- Market Street
- Port Rodie Roundabout
- Springwell Road Corner
- Stoneykirk Road Verges
The Council says it needs community volunteers to help with the on-going planting and maintenance of these beds, otherwise it will have to remove them and grass the areas over.

Watch Kim Inglis' report:
A woman's been in court in Carlisle accused of defrauding a charity set up by a teenager with cancer.
Thirty-two-year-old Hayley McTaggart faced five fraud charges and three counts of theft at the city's crown court.
Amongst the accusations is that she set up a bogus raffle for Alice's Escapes - a charity founded by Cumbrian teenager Alice Pyne, who died following a five-year battle with cancer.
The defendant, from Whitehven, is also accused of taking a cheque for £2,000 from the charity to pay for a sponsored walk up Kilimanjaro.
She denies all the charges and will next be at court in June.
A Dumfries man has raised more than £2,000 for the British Red Cross by hauling a 16 ton truck for 60 yards.
Dave Murray undertook the challenge on Sunday 24 May in front of a crowd in the Tesco car park at Cuckoo Bridge.
The 47-year-old Red Cross first aid volunteer wore a special harness and hauled himself along on a rope.
He dragged the massive truck from a standing start to the finishing line in just three minutes.
But the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary nursing auxiliary wasn’t happy that it took him so long, blaming a dip in the road and a split sole on his trainer for holding him up.
