Member Garden Video

One of our members, Frank Kirwan, often opens his beautiful garden near Humbie for Scotland's Gardens Scheme. The planned Easter weekend opening was unable to go ahead but Frank's garden pictures have been turned into a video by the charity that was to benefit from the open day, the Mamie Martin Fund. Have a look at Frank's lovely garden here:

Garden Galleries

While we're confined to our gardens, some of our members have been sharing a wander round their own gardens through our new page, Garden Galleries. Please do have a browse for some inspiration and feel free to share your pictures too by sending to Happy Easter, everyone!

Paper pots for seedlings

I've been starting seeds off on the windowsills and in the greenhouse and starting to prick out seedlings into paper pots to grow on a bit before being planted into a bigger pot or straight into the garden, pot and all. I love this origami paper pot pattern which you can do in different sizes to suit different sized seedlings. Have a go with a piece of A4 size but you can use magazines, newspaper cut to suit. It's great for kids and you could use plain paper and decorate them if you want to get creative - do send your pics to and we'll share them on the website! Instructions on YouTube here -

She writes: My priority was a greenhouse. This is now full of seedlings, a large bowl of rocket and lettuce and some tender plants. Then I had all the grass stripped off to reveal solid clay, much of which was sodden
