The team at Tingley were honoured to be invited to create a floral tribute in honour of rugby league legend Rob Burrow, and chose Yorkshire-grown plants in Leeds Rhinos’ club colours of Blue and Amber.

This week, James and Carl from Tingley Garden Centre planted up a 7.4mmemorial tribute at Headingley using pansies grown by Dalby’s in York.

The garden was designed by our Commercial Plant Manager, Marc Salama, who said: “We were honoured to be invited by Leeds Rhinos to be involved with this special floral tribute for a true Leeds legend who will always be in our hearts.

“We selected the pansy flower to represent the famous blue and amber colours of the Leeds Rhinos. It is often said that a pansy flower is ‘smiling’ with its heart-shaped, overlapping petals. This reminds us of Rob and his devotion to raising funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association whilst still smiling and remaining positive throughout his diagnosis”

A spokesman from Leeds Rhinos said: “A big thank you to the team at Tingley Garden Centre for providing our grounds team with 1,500 plants for a new floral tribute to Rob Burrow in our memorial garden at AMT Headingley.”
