The event, which ran last weekend, is aimed at both knowledgeable and new gardeners as well as those who just enjoy spending time outdoors. Highlights for families included storytelling in a giant tipi from Mairi Hedderwick, author of the famous Katie Morag books – organized by the event's charity partner NSPCC Scotland, a giant heart demonstrating how the human body works and water zorbing.
Hundreds of exhibitors in the Caley's Floral Hall, watch garden themed Fashion Shows, as well as demonstrations on hanging baskets, fuchsia growing, vegetable and herb cultivation and alpine planting.
In addition to the judges' awards the Show Garden from the Scottish Prison Service took home the Bakker.com 'I Dig It' People's Choice Award.
Show organiser Martin Dare said: "This was the 17th year of Gardening Scotland and the show continues to thrive. The weather over the weekend was absolutely exceptional with temperatures soaring to 24 degrees.
"We hope that every single visitor who came through our gates from Friday to Sunday learned a thing or two about gardening, and most importantly had a great day out."
Gardening Scotland 2017 will take place from 2 - 4 June.
