Pretty Pots Demonstrations

30 minute demonstrations
Sunday 21st June (3pm) & Monday 22nd June (11am and 2pm)

As gardens get smaller, and many people live in rented accomodation, container gardening continues to grow. 
Carolyn Spray will show you how to plant up a variety of containers using both perennial and seasonal plants, and add excitement, colour and interest to make the most of the space you have.

Love The Plot You've Got!

'Love the Plot You’ve Got' is a nationwide campaign, which is all about helping you to create a wonderful outdoor area where you and your family and friends will love spending time.

From balconies, backyards and window boxes, to a little space for a lawn, we’ll help you create a something to be truly proud of!

Gardening can be time consuming, and a little daunting. It’s hard to know what to plant, how or where to plant it, and what works well together. Many of us love spending time outside, and would like a space, which looks lovely, but doesn’t become a chore to maintain. We can help, and inspire you with lots of fun and simple ideas that will help transform even the most neglected back yard into a relaxing, beautiful space.

Here at Pentland Plants, we’ve got a huge selection of wonderful and easy to care for plants, to help you create bright floral displays, or even a mini herb or vegetable garden! We'll help you make the most of a small space by adding colour, scent, edibles, flowers, seating, containers, vertical gardening and lighting. We’ve got a fabulous seletion of items available. Pop in, and one of our friendly garden centre team will be more than happy to chat through your ideas, and provide any help and assistance you might need.

And don’t forget – Pentland Plants will be supporting Love The Plot You’ve Got at Gardening Scotland, this year! You’ll be able to catch up with our team at Ingliston in Edinburgh from the 29th – 31st May.

In the meantime, why not follow the nationwide campaign and be inspired with fabulous ideas at
