When it comes to creating stunning floral displays Morton’s Pharmacy in Axminster has the prescription for success.

It has just been named winner of the Rotary Club's hanging basket competition - open to commercial premises in the town.

A spokesman said the standard of entries was high again this year despite the recent hot, dry spell, giving judge, Rotarian Phil Banner, a difficult task.

Pharmacist Ian Morton attributed his success to

an efficient watering system they had put in place for the hanging baskets.
