(LaPorte, IN) - The planters in downtown LaPorte are getting ready for the season. A local florist called Perennials Galore is paid annually by the city’s Business Improvement District to plant and maintain 130 planters.
Bill Campbell is the owner of the business. He was in the area of Lincolnway and Clay St. with an army of his workers. Campbell said sunflowers are among the new species of plants going
into the soil this year. Another crew was out sandblasting the brick planters to give them a
good shine for the season.
