Newport Summer and Some Spring 2017


A busy year, not just with plants and planting but other events, from Rotary  Xmas Fayre, a Gardeners Question Time evening, Plant Stall and Competition at Newport Traders Festival and fishy art work with Primary Schools, Forgan Arts and Newport Summer Festival around the Bridge Boats.

  • Newport has added to the perennial planting this year with 3 new tubs as requested by a High Street business.
  • The Boatbrae bus stop now has a little Physic Garden with healing herbs and informative signage.
  • New and unusual herbal plants in one of the Coronation Garden planters.
  • The summer bedding is diascia, nemesis, cosmos and  osteospermum - mostly!

We apply for, and, so far, have received each year, a grant from Fife Council called a Floral Enhancement Grant - we try to enhance with 'Florals' and also  a Newport Community Council Grant; we could not function without these.  

We also fund raise - and ask for and gratefully receive donations!  

We strive to lessen bedding costs and waste with more perennial and sustainable planting, recycling if possible and seed sowing, propagating and sharing!   Thank you, those who help, and those who say "Love what you do"! πŸžπŸŒΉπŸ¦‹πŸŒΈπŸŒΉπŸž
