Saturday 2nd of April, 2016

10am - 12am

We are planting 1 million bulbs in Union Terrace Gardens!

As the snowdrops in our gardens begin to fade it's the perfect time to divide them, snowdrops are best planted now whilst they are 'in the green'. We are inviting you to donate some snowdrop plants from your garden this week whilst still in the green, we will then plant them in the Gardens and look forward to seeing them next spring. If you don't have any snowdrops, but would still like to contribute you can still find them in garden centres or buy them online from Cambo Estate in Fife and have them posted to us (Contact me for details).

We will hold a planting session on Saturday 2 April, just come to the Gardens with your snowdrops between 10am and 12 noon. Alternatively we can collect from you and plant them on your behalf, just leave a message at

The Friends of Union Terrace Gardens are campaigning...

  • To continue to prevent large scale development in Union Terrace Gardens
  • To raise funds for events and facilities in the park.
  • For improvements in UTG such as proper disabled access and toilets.
  • For enhancements to the gardens such as the return of the draughts sets and summer entertainment
  • Work alongside environmental and wildlife bodies to help maximize the use of the park for urban wildlife.
  • Working with a wide variety of groups and organisations to improve the gardens and increase usage. We have held many events, in all seasons. These have included carol singing in the winter, The Big Picnic (2010, 2011) in the summer and a night time candles and acoustic event.
