About Gardening Scotland
Gardening Scotland is the country’s national gardening and outdoor living festival, as well as being its largest plant fair. This year’s event will take place from Friday 3 to Sunday 5 June at the Royal Highland Showground, Ingliston.
Whether you’re an expert or a novice, Gardening Scotland encompasses everything to do with outside spaces catering for those with an interest in outdoor cooking and dining, growing and playing or nature and design.

Children love the event’s Big Back Garden, which provides a host of wonderful activities including treasure hunts, games, music, birds of prey, cheerleading and much more.

If you have a gardening query or problem and are stumped for a solution, you can get helpful advice from both the Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society (the Caley) and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), either through their workshop and question and answers sessions, or directly from their experts.

The Caley Floral Hall is home to Scotland and the UK’s top specialist nurseries and growers, and the event’s show gardens exemplify the latest and highest quality in garden design and plant quality.
There are also more than 400 exhibitors selling a huge range of plants, garden equipment, furniture, landscaping products, food, clothes and jewellery, plus more. Bargain hunters flock to the ‘Great Sunday Sell-Off’, when everything from the smallest plants to entire show gardens are sold at a fraction of their true price.
Gardening Scotland was nominated in Best Exhibition and Best Large Event Category at the Scottish Event Awards in 2013, it received a commendation for Best Exhibition. Gardening Scotland was also a finalist in the 2013 NOEA Awards.
