These not only provide the opportunity to garden and grow but also offer enjoyment, education and therapy for local groups, families and individuals. Each plot has its own character. Crops grown range from potatoes to peaches, godetia to grapes. Inspiration can be found everywhere, from planting combinations, irrigation methods, use of small spaces, unusual crops, etc. Environmental awareness is high on the agenda with a stunning wildflower meadow, hedgehog houses, bug hotels, group orchard and the use of recyclable materials.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
