Aberdeen Blooms


Information about the Aberdeen Blooms festival event held at the Hazlehead Park


In 2007 the City celebrated its continual winning success in national horticultural competitions such as Britain in Bloom by hosting the Aberdeen Blooms family festival at Hazlehead Park. It was officially opened by Chris Collins who is the celebrity gardener from the TV programme Blue Peter on BBC1 and heads the Grow Your Own campaign on UKTV.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.




The annual Royal Horticultural Society of Aberdeen Flower Show had traditionally taken place at the Duthie Park but has now moved location to Hazlehead Park to coincide with this event. This keeps alive a tradition that dates back to the year 1824. Exhibit categories include vegetables, flowers, wine making, baking, floral art, bonsai, cacti, crafts, photography and a competition for children.


It is organised and run by the local Council and RHSA. This family orientated day will see a mixture of horticultural and gardening events mixed with exhibits, activities and a food hall of local Aberdeenshire and Scottish produce.


Chris Collins, the celebrity television gardener has opened previous events.

Gardening demonstrations will take place and there will also be a Gardenerís Question Time style event with an expert panel on hand to answer gardening questions. It will also host craft stalls and trade stands. A new event is cooking demonstrations by local chefs who will be using ingredients from the North East of Scotland.
