Kincardine O’Neil is looking forward to a great show of flowers again this year.
Well over sixty community flower tubs and window boxes have been refilled with compost bought with community association funds and then planted up by village volunteers under the watchful eye of village resident Sandy Mann, who co-ordinates the planting and care of the flowers each year.
This year’s flowers, provided by Aberdeenshire Council, have a Jubilee theme with a Phormium grass centre “crown” and Begonias, Diascias, Bacopas and Petunias in various shades of red, white, pale yellow and blue.
As part of this year’s planting, the Community Association has also funded a special display around the Queen Victoria Jubilee Memorial in the village centre, including a jubilee rose bush.
Last year Kincardine O’Neil was awarded an “Outstanding” rating by Beautiful Scotland under their “It’s Your Neighbourhood” scheme.
