Gardening Scotland, which runs from 3-5 June at the Royal Highland Centre close to Edinburgh airport, features Hopetoun Hollows, a display consisting of five montages showing how gardens look in all four seasons. One of the collection of self-contained miniature gardens contains a group of fairies.
Over the years Gardening Scotland has become well known for its support of schools and community groups across the country, many of whom come together to showcase their talents within the Pallet Garden Competition, organised for Gardening Scotland by the Scottish Gardeners’ Forum.
Gardening clubs and schools from across Scotland compete to create gardens that measure 1m x 1m, with the aim being to encourage and foster future generations of young gardeners.
Children get free entry to Gardening Scotland. The Big Back Garden will play host to Glasgow Science Centre which will be promoting healthy living in the outdoors.
The author of the books behind CBeebies show Katie Morag, Mairi Hedderwick, will be reading her popular Katie Morag stories in the Storytelling Tipi on Saturday 4 June.
