A floral clock consists of a flower garden representing a large clock dial found in a park, a garden, or a public place. The first world-installed clock garden was in the Princess Street Gardens in Edinburgh in 1903. It had a diameter of 12 feet (4.8 m.).
The garden clock of the City of Kyiv, illustrated, is known as the largest one in Europe. The James Ritchie and Son Company of Edinburgh, founded in 1809 and still in existence, designed it and provided the movement. It was a gift from the City of Edinburgh.
