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.
