The community garden in Little Paxton should look even more attractive next year thanks to a donation from the village's Co-op food store.
A donation of £250 has been presented to Little Paxton Parish Council by the Co-op store in the village and the money will be used for spring and summer planting.
Parish clerk Jenny Gellatly said: "We are absolutely delighted. We will use the money for spring and summer planting when the weather is a bit better."
The community garden has been built on a piece of former roadside verge which has been transferred to the parish council.
A holly tree, one of a handful of original trees on the piece of land, has been pressed into service to double as a Christmas tree and has been decorated with festive lights by the council.
Mrs Gellatly said: "It has drawn a lot of people in to see the community garden."
