Blooming Borders!

SRUC Oatridge Horticulture Lecturer Grant Skillen recently helped to judge gardens for “Peebles In Bloom 2021” along with Dawyck Botanic Garden  Assistant Curator Thomas Gifford.


Judges were allowed to view front gardens this year adhering to Covid 19 Guidelines. Displays consisted of small, medium and large front gardens, commercial properties as well as community gardens. All gardens were of a very high standard. Commenting, Grant said “It was an honour to be asked to judge Peebles in Bloom. Greatly appreciate the hard work everyone has put into their gardens. Well done everyone!!!

Grant captured a few images of the lovely blooms in question, see above. Well done indeed, from all at SRUC!
