Earlston in Bloom update

Some lovely recognition for Earlston in Bloom when the opening screen of an online Keep Scotland Beautiful information session featured this photograph and our wonderful Flowerpot Men. 

The small band of Earlston Bloomers have been out working since late winter, wearing our fancy yellow hi viz vests sponsored by Melrose Foot Care Ltd – Melrose Clinic.

So far – dug in even more donated snowdrops, given the Kidgate borders and the new tulip area a spring clean, tackled The Green that we’ve taken over from Scottish Borders Council this year.

The wet and very cold winter means even more work than usual needed at Church Brae. For starters, all the hebes donated by Scottish Borders Housing Association have died and need replaced, while the weeds and horsetail have thrived.

Helpers and volunteers always needed and appreciated, you can’t have too many willing hands.
