South Holland MP John Hayes will officially open the Sutton Bridge In Bloom community garden next month.
The bloom team are currently building the garden in Memorial Park, close to The Curlew Centre.
But they have already suffered a setback with a Latin-speaking lout heaping stones from a drainage ditch to spell out words like carpe diem (seize the day) in the bare earth.
The ditch was built to help car park users as the area is prone to minor flooding.
Now they hope they can complete the garden without further incident.
Mr Hayes will open the new facility in a ceremony on Saturday, October 12, at 11am.
