THE final countdown is under way to Cupar’s horticultural event of the century!

Gardening enthusiasts are to gather in the town’s Corn Exchange next weekend for a two-day extravaganza being held to mark Cupar Flower Show’s 100th anniversary.

The show will be officially opened on the morning of Saturday, August 27, by TV’s gardening guru Jim McColl, who will be staying on to host a gardeners’ question time session later in the day.

Throughout the weekend, there’ll be talks, demonstrations and trade stands - but the main attraction will be the stunning exhibitions of flowers, fruit and vegetables, floral art, handicrafts and needlework, baking, photography, wine making and preserves.

The younger generation will also be showing off their skills in designing and painting, cookery and flower arranging, and there are special events aimed at the area’s local primary school children.

And it’s not too late to enter this very special show!

Amateur gardeners of all ages are invited to take part, with entries are being taken right up to 9.30pm on Friday, August 26, and the schedule can be downloaded from

Organisers are also keen to encourage interest from as far afield as possible, and people interested in either exhibiting or attending can get in touch via the website or by calling Wanda Wheelans on 01334 654648.
