For three days the grounds of the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh undergo a transformation in an explosion of scent and colour. This is Gardening Scotland – the national gardening and outdoor living Show and Scotland’s gardening festival!
It is the biggest plant fair in Scotland, promising to provide everything from an abundance of beautiful plants to tools, equipment, garden furniture and all the inspiration you could need to make your garden grow.
In nurseries across the UK, leading growers are already tending to the plants that they will bring to next year’s Show to provide gardeners with inspiration, information and top quality plants.
Gardening Scotland will be returning from 2nd – 4th June 2017 with new and exciting elements for everyone to enjoy.
Outside the Show Garden Avenue will display the work of leading garden designers who this year have been given the challenge of showing what can be done with the sorts of gardens that most people have at home, while both the Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society and the RHS will be on hand with expert advice on growing and gardening.
More than 400 exhibitors will be selling tools, furniture, and all sorts of home and garden accessories, other attractions include a Craft Marquee, a Food Theatre and a Food Fayre. Dozens of schools and gardening groups from across Scotland will be creating mini Pallet Gardens and kids big and small will be able to enjoy outdoor fun in the Big Back Garden, as well as finding out more from The Living Garden about the creatures that share our plots.
