TV’s gardening guru Jim McColl is heading to Cupar at the end of the month to open Cupar Flower Show’s two-day centenary event and to host a special gardeners’ question time.

The show will be held in Cupar’s Corn Exchange on Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28, and organisers have lined up a busy programme of talks, presentations and craft demonstrations throughout the weekend, together with trade stands covering gardening services, societies and other products.

Plants, cut flowers, fruit and vegetable exhibits will also be on display, as well as handicrafts, baking, jams and wine.

There’s also still just time to enter the SWRI, floral art and schools’ collage competitions, which close this Sunday, August 7.

A new competition for budding photographers will close on August 19.

The show, which has received the support of many local businesses, will be officially opened by Jim McColl, of BBC’s Beechgrove Garden, at 11am on August 27, and the choir from Castlehill Primary School will sing a special rendition of ‘One Hundred Years.’

Later that day, Jim will be joined by horticultural experts Peter Christopher and Leslie Bisset to answer questions and identify plants.
