What is a Pocket Garden?

A Pocket Garden is a miniature garden that uses edible plants, plants that attract wildlife, and that reuses something which would otherwise have been thrown away. 

Each year, we invite young people from schools across Scotland to send in their designs for a colourful and exciting environmentally friendly, pocket-sized garden.  Pupils who send in the winning designs are then invited to build and grow their gardens to display. 

Many of us have recently discovered joyful and practical learning through growing plants and connecting with our communities. The 2023 One Planet Picnic Pocket Garden Design Competition builds on this, linking garden design, sustainability and celebration. You can find out more about this years' competition by downloading the Pocket Garden 2023 brochure

Previously, Pocket Gardens have been displayed at Gardening Scotland in Edinburgh, where they have been visited by the BBC Beechgrove Garden team, the Scottish Government Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform and the Lord Provost of Edinburgh.
