Living Garden at Gardening Scotland

Every year, the Garden for Life Forum members exhibit in the Living Garden area at Gardening Scotland - the national gardening and outdoor living show and Scotland’s gardening festival.


In 2017, Gardening Scotland will run from 2-4 June at The Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh. 


Visitors to the Living Garden can chat with forum members to find out more about each organisation, explore how to garden for nature through the Living Garden's centrepiece show garden, and attend one of the exciting and informative workshops that run throughout each day.


For the second year running, in 2017 the Forum is delighted to be working together with Keep Scotland Beautiful to offer a 'One Planet Picnic pocket garden' competition and that this is part of the Year of History Heritage and Archaeology. Young people aged 3-18 from across Scotland are being asked to design a colourful and exciting pallet sized garden using plants that can be eaten and attract biodiversity, and reuse materials which would otherwise have been thrown away. Visit the competition web page here for more information.
