Dundee has a great community spirit and lots of community groups doing great work in their local neighbourhood, we love incorporating this enthusiasm in the show wherever we can. Check out what some of Dundee’s groups have been doing recently in these photos and videos, along with contributions from some of the organisations who support them.
Protecting plants, Protecting Life
Keep Scotland Beautiful
Make your own plastic free plant pots, a Kokedama workshop led by Angela Smith (RHS Outreach Officer)
Connecting up your community by planting for pollinators, Eugenie Aroutcheff (Grow 73) and Anthony McCluskey (Butterfly Conservation and Garden for Life Forum)
Gardeners' Question Time
Keep Scotland Beautiful hosted a Gardeners' Question Time as part of this year's Virtual Show. The fantastic panel of experts includes George Anderson (BBC Beechgrove Garden), Anthony McCluskey (Butterfly Conservation & Garden for Life Forum), and Jenny Mollison ('Allotment Tales' columnist for The Scotsman).
Find out how to solve issues with growing herbs; what went wrong with wildflower patches; issues with aphids; how to control voles; how to deal with little flies on houseplants; how to adapt growing to climate change; when to collect/harvest seeds from perennials; and our panel share their successes and failures.
