Winners of the Fairy Gardening competition at Brechin Castle Garden Centre have been selected from a spectacular array of entries, bringing fairy magic and good luck throughout Angus.
Fairy Gardening is gardening in miniature, complete with tiny living plants and luxuries which attract passing fairies including houses, furniture, pets and even mood lighting. The design and components of each fairy garden are limited only by imagination with entrants using their creative skills to provide tiny spaces, tended with love where fairy magic can occur.
Centre Managing Director Yvonne Ritchie enthused ?It is fantastic to see such imaginative designs. Fairy gardening is perfect for all ages creating a pastime which generations of loved ones can share. This fun hobby nurtures artistic talents and develops knowledge of gardening while less able-bodied gardeners can enjoy tending a special place without such physically demanding work. Fairy gardening is hugely popular in the US and we are delighted to see that fairy magic spreading into Angus.?
Judges selected winning entries for the most creative designs with Children’s Winner Lucy Johnstone Age 11 and Grandparent’s Winner Ann Pollock receiving ?30 vouchers for the Centre.
Winning Grandparent Ann added ?Fairy gardening is a great way to spend time with your grandchildren which in itself is truly magical.?
Runners Up Leah Henderson Age 4, Rhiannon Crockatt Age 9 and Georgie Newman Age 6 were awarded ?10 vouchers and all entrants were presented with certificates of merit.
