Since 2017 we have not entered competitions but we have not been idle. In 2019, as well as our normal displays, we have needed to purloin, paint and replace various boats and tubs. A team has also landscaped the road triangle on the junction with the Loch Road. Doesn't it all look Fab!
We Aim to be Environmentally Friendly
We aim to create stunning displays using both annual and perennial plants in our containers and we try to recycle, save and reuse as many plants,bulbs and corms as we can each year. We also buy locally from Pathhead Nursery, Anstruther, Fife.
We Involve Other Community Groups
We involve SAMH, Evergreen Nursery in Kirkcaldy in planting our hanging baskets. The nursery provides work experience opportunities in horticulture for people with mental health problems enabling trainee gardeners to gain experience, skills and training.
The Brownies have made a wonderful fairy garden to the left of the entrance to the Community Centre.
In 2019 the Kinghorn Ecology Centre worked with us to provide edible plants of a variety of herbs on the High Street. Do help yourself!
We Celebrate Special Events
In 2019 we celebrated 10 YEARS OF KINGHORN IN BLOOM!
Our theme for for The Julian Hall Boat in 2018 was Glow for Gold in recognition of childhood cancer and for 2017 was in recognition of John McAulay, the only Kinghorn man who won The Victoria Cross.
During the Pandemic
In 2020 we just bought what plants we could when we could but Spring 2021 has seen our bulbs come up once more to brighten our tubs. It is unlikely that we will be able to do hanging baskets again this year but we'll see what we can do.
