Gardeners’ Question Time in Carnoustie

CARNOUSTIE Community Council has organised a Gardener’s Question Time next week which will feature a renowned horticulturalist.

On Monday, Austin Myers, who has received accolades at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show and the BBC Gardeners’ World Exhibition will host an open question and answer session at the Royal British Legion (Scotland) clubrooms on Dundee Street.

He will also give a practical planting demonstration on hanging baskets and container planting.

Austin Myers has worked on a multiple medal winning garden at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show and has also won the ‘Best Live Stand’ award at the BBC Gardeners’ World Exhibition for four consecutive years.

Last year Carnoustie Community Council was awarded a bronze medal by the Keep Scotland Beautiful campaign and it is hoped the town can this year build on that success.

If any group, business or individual is interested in sponsoring a hanging basket in the town, contact Ed Oswald on 01241 859876, Sue McMahon on 01241 852549 or Kirsty MacDonald on 01241 853584.

Entry is free and the evening commences at 7 p.m.
