Mark Paterson, Curator of the Cruickshank Botanic Gardens at the University of Aberdeen, opened the Pitmedden and Udny Flower show today. Mark encouraged local gardeners to visit the botanic gardens and to take inspiration from a wonderful resource just a few miles away in Aberdeen. http://abdn.ac.uk/botanic-garden/ Mr Paterson went on to award the shields and trophies for this year’s best entries.
Susan Kilpatrick, Flower Show committee Secretary (pictured centre) said that while numbers were down this year there was a lot to enjoy and hoped that more people will get growing and making entries in the years ahead.
The full results will be posted shortly.
