Scotland’s National Horticultural & Gardening Society
The Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society was established in 1809 by a group of seventeen Edinburgh worthies for ‘the encouragement and improvement of the best fruit, the most choice flowers and the most useful culinary vegetables’. Current members of the Society continue to share a common interest in all aspects of gardening and horticulture. As a registered Scottish Charity the Society seeks to promote, encourage and support a wide range of horticultural and gardening interests, including a range of educational projects.
Gardening Scotland is Scotland’s National Gardening and Outdoor Living Show. The Caley was heavily involved in the establishment of the Show and continues to have a very close involvement. The 2018 show will be held on the 1st-3rd June at The Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh.
