WORK is being carried out on the Carpet Gardens along Eastbourne seafront.

The Carpet Gardens are at the final stage of soil replenishment due to removal of the weed Oxalis and its root system.

The Oxalis weed has been growing in the beds for the last few years.

All oxalis have three-part, clover-like leaves; one common name for some species is false shamrock.

It stunts the growth of other flowers and plants and can lay dormant in the soil for several years.

The council says replanting will commence around late October.
