We are planning a Dalrymple Flower and Produce Show in the church hall on Saturday September 8th. So, it’s time for all gardeners and budding gardeners to get their thinking caps on to plan what they are going to grow and enter. There will be lots of categories and we will update you on that soon. The hall is booked, the judges are booked, so, it’s over to you. We reckon folks from out side the village will enter as well so it ups the competition!
We got the idea of a flower show from the early results of the East Ayrshire community planning survey when many people said they liked the idea of “Dalrymple in Bloom” and would like to see the village a more colourful, attractive and greener place. Our primary school are keen to get involved after the success of the charity and the School Gardening Club children working together to grow and pot up Muscari and Tete a Tete narcissi into 100 pots to give as gifts to senior citizens of the Village at their Christmas Lunch. They looked fabulous.
So come on you gardeners! Seeds at the ready, pots lined up, watering cans full – GO.
