Aberdeen in Bloom Competition


Application forms for the 2017 competition are now available and entries have to be returned got to be returned to Aberdeen City Council by 14 July.  We have always been big supporters of the City’s, Britain in Bloom efforts and I hope we will see the usual big entry from plotters this year.  A good level of entries helps show how keen we plotters are on our allotments and the Council’s work to support green spaces and gardening.

Plotters can pick up an entry from from the Bothy or from Council offices and libraries.  Alternatively, you can submit your entry online via the Aberdeen in Bloom Page.

I hope we will see a bumper crop of entries this year!

The Big Garthdee Green Adventure

We enjoyed two visits from the Kaimhill Kids this week.  Mrs Rennie’s Class 4/5 were with us on Wednesday for a work session including veggie sowing and planting out, creating flower baskets for the Octagon and building nesting boxes and bug boxes.  Thanks to Stuart, Gill, Jacqui and Graeme.

Then on Thursday we had the first running of our new biodiversity treasure hunt with Mr Whimster and Mrs Mellis and their Primary 3 class.  I think we can say a good time was had by all – despite the glum faces during the initial briefing!
