In 2020 we adapted the Pocket Garden competition to become ‘Pop-up Pocket Garden at Home’ as a lockdown project for schools, children and families. Some of the young gardeners also presented their Pop-Up Pocket Gardens on BBC2’s Beechgrove Garden.

Themes for 2020 were Keep Scotland Beautiful's 20th Birthday and the Year of Coasts and Waters.
