Floral clock designer announces retirement

THE main designer of a floral clock on Edinburgh’s Princes Street has announced his retirement.

David Dorward has overseen the Princes Street Gardens’ floral clock since 1982. Dorward has had a 44-year career with the council’s park service.

Says The City of Edinburgh Council, here: “Throughout his career with the council, David has worked with colleagues to design and plant 40 of the city’s iconic clocks, with designs ranging from jubilees and war commemorations to the anniversary of the clock itself! In 2003, the clock was awarded a gold medal at the Chelsea Flower Show.”
