out we had at Gardening Scotland on Friday. A bit wet in the rain but it didn’t stop us touring the show gardens, spending lots of time in the Exhibition Hall and buying some new plants.
We also came away with a few certificates from the Pallet Garden Competition.
Silver Gilt for Stewart and the pupils at Glencryan School for their bog garden theme.
Gold for Cedarbank for their pallet garden – “The Living Organ” and all the healthy fruit and vegetables you can grow. They use their vegetables to make Soup for their lunch every Wednesday.
Pinewood also won a gold for their garden “The Outdoor Classroom” which was full of lots of interesting plants and herbs. They also won second in show for the group category but were pipped out of first place by this brilliant garden based on Peter Rabbit and aptly called “Mr McGregor’s Garden”
