About Bucksburn in Bloom                

We were formed from the love of gardening & wanting to see our area that we live in look a whole lot better with the help of floral displays & trying to kep the area clean & tidy.

it all started with my garden displays, that have been judged by Aberdeen in Bloom for a good many years. we made enquiries with our local council to have hanging brackets placed on the 4 lamp-post, so that we could put up hanging baskets. From there we put in containers for 2 areas so that these could be planted up both summer & winter. we then entered into the RHS National photographice flower bed picture, we did not expect to be awarded anything but we came 2nd in our class, we then gave our group the chance to design & build a 7m x 4m flower bed for a national flower show in Cheshire, near Manchester

you will see some of the photograghs around our web site. the Oil Rig was our 1st entry called "Scotlands Homecoming" to link up with the scottish homecoming activities around Scotland. Our 2nd entry (2010), was called "When Bucksburn Met the Highlander. Gracie the highland cow you will see in the photograghs was kindly loaned to our entry to show the visitors to the show how the cattle here in scotland were back iin the 1600, The Loch Katrine Centre, at Callander who loaned Gracie was given a copy of the RHS Bronze Medal to place on her stable for all to see. She is well worth going to see the star of our flower bed & the show.
