Grown in Angus

The ‘Grown in Angus’ Plant Market will take place in the Myre on Saturday, May 26 from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

This is a real Gathering of the Gardeners, with plant stalls by Forfar Garden Club, Plant Heritage, Letham Garden Club, and Friends of the House of Dun.

Charity stalls for Chrisitna Noble Childrens Foundation, ENKHA, will add to the variety of locally grown plants for sale.

There will be specialist growers as well, including Jim Batchelor with his famed Aberlemno honey.

Eleanor Gledhill, organiser of the event and president of the Forfar Garden Club, said: “We must have the bee man, as without the bees we wouldn’t have all these lovely plants. Last year was the first year of the plant market, and it was a huge success.

“The plants on sale are all used to our weather.

“New gardeners will have a lot more success with locally grown plants, rather than the plants imported from greenhouses in Holland.”

The event will start at 9.30am with the ringing of the bell, just like they do at the Chelsea Flower Show.
