Over 100 entries were received for this year’s Ballantrae in Bloom competitions.

The prizes will be presented at the Flower Show on Saturday 13 August.

Over 100 entries were forward and judge Mr Andy McGarva commented on the high standard of the entries considering the weather and exposed sites of some gardens and would urge everyone to continue their interest.

The event was generously and kindly sponsored by Craigiemains Garden Centre, Glenapp Castle Hotel, Kings Arms Hotel, Chris McCulloch, Jim Miller, McCulloch Rail. Pebbles Spa, Janette Sloan, Scotmid, and Soleburn Garden Centre. This support is very much appreciated by the Ballantrae in Bloom Committee.
