Leeds City Council is holding a plant sale this week-end to get rid of its surplus plants.
At first site this a great example of an entrepreneurial council hopefully raising some cash from surplus production that might just reduce our council tax by a fraction.
But on the other hand it is an example of a council leveraging enormous buying power and resources to take market share from local growers and no doubt business rate payers.
Is a public plant sale the best route for a council to take or could they do something more productive?
