Garrie's Corner 2019


Auchterarder is a small town located north of the Ochil Hills in Perth and Kinross and is home to the famous Gleneagles Hotel. The 1.5-mile-long High Street gave the town its popular name of "The Lang Toun" or Long Town.
The Auchterarder Bloom Association aims to provide the town with colourful features throughout the Spring and Summer months,
making it attractive for both residents and visitors. Volunteers grow on approximately 2500 plug plants in the group's polytunnel from April to mid June each year, and plant them out for the summer. That display stays in place until September/October,
when it is then replaced with later-flowering such as polyanthus, tulips and pansies. 
In 2019 the group, with support from Take a Pride in P&K Association and a number of supporters and funders, completed an ambitious project to transform Garrie's Corner in the centre of the town into a green and welcoming community space (pictured left). Read more about the project in this case study.
