Alloa in Bloom
Delighetd to welcome Alloa in Bloom back to the judged category this year!
Alloa in Bloom was established five years ago as a volunteer group and has been working to improve all aspects of the floral arrangements and small garden areas in the town centre of Alloa, in partnership with Alloa First BID.
In 2021, Alloa in Bloom won the David Welch Memorial Award for Something Special - for the partnership between Alloa First BID and Gartinny Nursery, an outreach facility run by Scottish Autism, for supply of quality plants for town centre displays. A key attribute to the group is how they have organised their supply of plant material. Instead of relying on their local authority, they have established a working partnership with a plant nursery, which is an outreach facility run by Scottish Autism. The town centre is a riot of colour, with numerous hanging containers, half barrels and planters, and the plants are grown to a standard as good as, if not better, than any leading Scottish ornamental plant producer.
