Telling the time with flowers

Edinburgh citizens may miss their train from Waverley if they set their watches by it.

But one of Edinburgh's best known floral displays is celebrating the capital's decade long status as a Fair Trade City. The floral clock tucked in a corner of West Princes Street is thought to be the oldest in the world dating back to 1903. It celebrates a different organisation each year. Park manager David Dorward and gardener Jillian Denney complete this year's design, which highlights Edinburgh's support for workers in the developing world.
