Our organisation is a very pro-active group, we have a committee of 12, assisted by many "Friends" & helpers who tend to all the feature beds in Pitlochry on a weekly basis through the Summer and Autumn.
We also assist and are helped by the many community groups in town. We were
set up in 1993 under the umbrella of the "Take a Pride in Perthshire" campaign.
The campaign was initiated to encourage local communities to take
responsibility for improving and caring for their local environment, natural,
build and cultural.
With sponsorship from local businesses and our fund raising events we are able to put on a magnificent floral show through the year. We have worked hard over the last 16 years to maintain all the floral features in town and introduce new sustainable ones. We continue to work to improve our environmental quality for locals and visitor
We always try to involve as many local people as possible in the campaign, even those who cannot get out to garden.
We are extremely grateful for all the support, encouragement and sponsorship we receive from the local community. Do a little, change a lot.
Long-term sustainability with low maintenance feature beds, the bio-diversity of the Wildlife Garden, the Petit Jardin, our "Gardens for Life" entry in Gardening Scotland 2001, and now the Armoury Park, opened in 2002, continue the work begun 15 years ago.
We always try to involve as many local people working closely with community groups and businesses to enhance the Victorian Heritage of the town, Pitlochry in Bloom has chosen the theme of Victorian wrought iron work and commissioned sculptured figures to complement the environment.
Pitlochry in Bloom has now won over 50 awards since 1993, please view our awards page for all the details of our many acheivements.
The community spirit generated in the town has been effectively harnessed by
Pitlochry in Bloom and has resulted in people, Plants & Pride working
together for the benefit of the community. Come and see for yourselves you will
be most welcome!
