Lo­cals come to­gether for flower plant­ing

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE WEEKEND TICKET - David Phillips

Mem­bers of sev­eral community or­gan­i­sa­tions in Coupar An­gus turned out on Satur­day to help with the plant­ing of 10,000 cro­cus bulbs at the Com­mon.

The flow­ers will add to the spring dis­play named lo­cally as Har­low’s Flow­ers in mem­ory of Har­low Ed­wards, who was killed, aged two, just over a year ago.

Har­low’s mum and dad, Sara and Steve, joined the planters and Sara said they were com­forted by the con­tin­u­ing sup­port of the community.

The plant­ing was ar­ranged by Pride of Place and pur­ple bulbs – Tom­masini­anus – were from Ro­tary In­ter­na­tional as part of its Pur­ple4Po­lio cam­paign.

On Friday Ken Mack­e­son, Bill Ron­ald and Bruce Mal­loch got the loan of a turf cut­ter from Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil to cut the turf near the Prince­land Road side of the Com­mon. This made for an eas­ier and more or­derly plant­ing.

A year ago 10,000 bulbs were planted at the top of the Com­mon and when they bloomed were known as Har­low’s Flow­ers.

Big day For Har­low’s mum and dad Steve and Sara
