Floors Castle is ‘buzzing’ about the arrival of one thousand clay bees from Kelso High School

More than 1,000 golden clay bees have been handmade, fired and painted locally in Kelso. Young people from Kelso High School and surrounding primary schools have worked alongside their teachers, local community, politicians and business leaders to create ‘The Golden Swarm’. The bees will form an installation that celebrates the collaboration of the local community and is the product of the Golden Swarm project which began over one year ago.

How we look after our Chrysanthemums

March is still a busy time of the year in the gardens at Floors Castle. During the winter and early spring much preparation occurs to ensure the gardens look impressive during the summer. One plant that needs more preparation than most are our Chrysanthemums which are used for decoration in the castle when they are flowering.
