This summer Jim McColl of BBC Scotland’s Beechgrove Garden
donned his judging hat and headed down from Oldmeldrum to choose the best garden in Kintore.
Jim had no information about whose gardens he was seeing. But he found a winner.
At this week’s Kintore and District Community Council meeting the owner of the garden was revealed.
He is none other than Ainslie Reid, who organises the team of volunteers who plant and maintain Kintore’s colourful floral displays, but still manages to find time to create an award-winning garden.
Accepting his winning trophy from Fiona Cooper (above, left), chairman of Kintore and District Community Council, Ainslie Reid (right) talked enthusiastically about his plans for winter planting in Kintore and explained how he was already planning and ordering plants for summer 2018.
He also talked of his ambition to get some more floral displays around our beautiful 18th century Town House.
Fiona Cooper congratulated Ainslie on his success in the garden competition and thanked him and his fellow volunteers for their tremendous work in organising Kintore’s attractive attractive floral displays each year.
