Each year flowers and gardens are celebrated at Gardening Scotland held at the Royal Highland Centre just outside, Edinburgh city centre.
This year will be even more blooming marvellous! Not only celebrating all things floral but also a whopping 20 years! Taking place this year from Friday 31st May till Sunday 2nd June. With new exhibitors, and well-stocked exhibition stands including everything from new bulbs to garden ornaments and more!

I love the popular garden workshops in previous years hosted by television garden celebrities and experts such as Jim McColl, Carole Baxter and George Anderson from Beechgrove Garden. The perfect place to get those tricky garden conundrums answered.

How To Get There
Lothian Buses will be running a dedicated service again this year from Edinburgh city centre to Gardening Scotland. Timetable to be released soon.
Not located in Edinburgh don't worry there will be coaches picking up from 20 different locations in Scotland including Falkirk, Glasgow, St Andrews and Aberdeen.
All coaches will have air conditioning, reclining seats and free Wi-Fi and there will be plenty of space on board to store plants and other purchases. Go green to this year's Gardening Scotland.
Maybe you have decided to enjoy the weekend in Edinburgh. There is a wide range of accommodation available for all budgets both near and far. Did you know there is now a new Marriott Moxy Hotel located at Edinburgh Airport? It's just a stone through away from the Royal Highland Centre - Gardening Scotland. Moxy Hotels, Marriott International’s experiential hotel brand opened its newest hotel, at Scotland’s busiest airport in January. The 230-bedroom Moxy Edinburgh Airport is an edgy boutique hotel. With bedroom interiors book-themed to reflect on locality, a nod to Edinburgh’s status as UNESCO’s City of Literature.
