Residents and visitors to Glasgow have a lot of choice when it comes to flower events. The Glasgow Cathedral Flower Festival takes place in July and has the theme of 'Roots, Shoots and Fruits'. It's a two day event which aims to celebrate the floral and craft work of both Scotland and the Commonwealth countries. Gardens in Kew Terrace will be throwing open the gates in June as part of Scotland's Open Gardens scheme. Kew Terrace is a traditional Victorian terrace along Great Western Road containing 20 houses and their back gardens have become jointly known as a series of Secret Gardens. They are all distinct from each other but all promote urban 'green' gardening over using the space as a car park!
The county flower designated for Glasgow is Broom or Cytisus scoparius. Also known as Scotch or Scot's Broom, it is a wiry green shrub that produces small but plentiful yellow golden flowers. It is hardy yet ornamental and often found on seaside cliffs. When in bloom it can emit a distinctive coconut-like odour in the warmth of the sun.
Following St Mungo's miracles, Let Glasgow Flourish is the city's motto and nowhere is this better displayed than in the city's love for flowers. The stunning Glasgow Botanic Gardens are in the city's west end, near the University and contain an Arboretum and open public parkland, a favourite walk for many of the city's residents and visitors from further afield. Maintained by the City of Glasgow Council, the park follows the bends of the river Kelvin and contains a mixture of wilder woodland and formal, structured gardens. The Botanic Garden maintains several beautiful and well-planted glasshouses and the most well-known of these is the Kibble Palace, named after photographer and engineer John Kibble. This was recently renovated and re-erected on its current site in 2006. It contains a spectacular display of ferns as well as many other plants.
All of the glasshouses were refurbished at around the same time - from 1988 (after the Glasgow Garden Festival) to 2004. Originally they were made of wood but were upgraded to sturdier and longer-lasting metal structures. These plant houses are renowned internationally and balance their tropical environments for both the growing and the stunning arrangement of exotic plants and flowers. Glasshouse 1 is a conservatory and hosts a year-long floral display, perfect for a natural pick-me-up during the often dismal winter months
The People's Palace is another beautiful garden site for lovers of flowers. It is set in the centre of Glasgow Green, the largest park in Glasgow. At the moment Glasgow City Council is invested in developing two areas of horticultural excellence in Glasgow Green- McPhun's Park, which will provide a atmosphere of peace and meditation and the People's Palace Gardens. Also attached to the People's Palace are the Winter Gardens, a graceful and artistic Victorian Glasshouse which contains a cafe so that you can sit and enjoy the tropical flowers at any time of year. The Winter Gardens also hosts an annual programme of events and is available for events and weddings - the perfect setting if you love flowers!
The Glasgow Garden Festival was a major event in the city's history, and took place from April - September 1988. Not only city residents but many of the 4.3 million festival visitors are sure to remember the iconic multicoloured floral logo, containing orange, blue and yellow petals and multiple shades of green. The Garden Festival was the first major event the city had hosted in over 50 years and provided a massive boost to the area's tourism and industry. The swing 'Bell' bridge remains to this day as a legacy and the site itself was redeveloped for the Glasgow Science Centre and Pacific Quay, the city's media quarter.
