A giant flower pot man at Barton Grange Garden Centre is causing quite a stir with young and old visitors alike.

There is one problem though – garden centre staff cannot decide what to call him.

So they are having a competition for customers to name him.

Customers of all ages can enter the competition by filling in a slip next to the giant flower pot man and popping it into the box provided.

There will be a prize for the person who suggests the winning name.

The flower pot man, who is made of scores of flower pots, was the idea of garden centre display team member Joanna Hyde, who built it with her colleagues.

The flower pot man is over five metres tall and is quite a sight to see.

Part of the thinking behind the promotion is to encourage youngsters to grow their own vegetables.
