If you live in Perth you can help make the City bloom with colour whether you have a window box or a big garden, a few small pots or lots of big tubs and containers, whether you live in a flat or a mansion! If you need gardening advice you can talk to helpful staff in one of the local garden centres in or near Perth, contact a local gardening company or check out the RHS website. If you'd like to join us as a volunteer to help us plant and maintain some of Perth's public flower beds and displays, please get in touch.
Local businesses and organisations can also contribute - whether you run a small business or manage a large organisation and whether you are in the private, public or voluntary sector. It doesn't matter whether you have room only for a few window boxes or hanging baskets or have large grounds and gardens to play with - you can help Perth maintain its reputation for horticultural excellence. If you're interested in hiring pre-planted hanging baskets for your premises during the summer months, Perth & Kinross Council runs a Business Hanging Baskets Scheme that can include watering and maintenance. If you'd like to support us through your staff volunteering sessions, or wish to sponsor our work, please get in touch.
Enter our local awards scheme
We run our Beautiful Perth Awards to celebrate everyone who helps keep our Fair City looking so lovely. We have categories for residential properties, business premises and community projects. You don't have to be an expert gardener to enter for a horticultural award, and projects at any stage of development can be put forward for a community award - we're looking for gardens that brighten up the City, and projects that enhance the local environment. There are Bronze, Silver, Silver Gilt and Gold Award certificates to be won, reflecting all levels of achievement, so why not give it a go?
