Our events

A core charitable aim of the Society is to advance education in gardening and horticulture for the public benefit. We seek to achieve this in a number of different ways, through lectures, workshops, sharing learning, providing advice, information and practical demonstrations.


The Caley offers an exciting programme of talks, run fortnightly, over the winter months from October to March. Whatever your horticultural interests are, there will be something to interest you. Talks are free to members; guests are very welcome and are asked to make a small donation for entry.

The Society holds an annual Spring Show and is heavily involved in the running of Gardening Scotland. Members of the Society are often involved in other Horticultural Shows and produce from the allotment is also entered at some local shows. Many local societies are part of the Scottish Gardeners Forum   which was established by the Caley to provide a supportive network for smaller societies.  You will find a useful list of shows across Scotland in their newsletter which is on their website.

Workshops covering all aspects of horticulture will be available at The Caley’s demonstration gardens at Saughton Park from autumn 2018 once the park is open, following the exciting redevelopment project which is currently underway.
