An additional six troughs full of flowers were added to Welwyn Garden City’s railway station.
Around 30 people helped to install six troughs and flower beds on Wednesday last week, bringing the total to 12.
Volunteers from the WGC Station Adoption Group and All Aboarders joined forces with staff from GTR Great Northern and representatives of sponsors, donors and partners for the gardening event.
Work to refresh the six existing flower beds also took place, a year after they were first unveiled.
Colin Bifield, vice chair of the All Aboarders said: "We had a fantastic morning working on the station, building on what we have already done.

"We are grateful to GTR who organised the event and provided the six new flower troughs with plants to go in them.
"The station platforms are gradually being restored to their former glory".
Welwyn Garden City station manager William Buck was also enthusiastic.
He said: "It was fantastic to see GTR, All Aboarders and the community come together to install new planters and spruce up Welwyn Garden City Station.
"We at GTR are excited to continue to grow and nurture the relationship between ourselves and the community."
