Unexpected Gardens

We planted edible gardens in 13 locations across Scotland – transforming unused land and unexpected places into flourishing growing and event spaces


Dandelion’s Unexpected Gardens stand as living, breathing and growing proof that even the unlikeliest places can blossom and bloom. Springing up in all sorts of surprising spots across Scotland, from the Borders to the Highlands to the Islands, they were spaces to grow – but also places to gather, hosting events, activities, workshops and performances. To find out what went on at each garden, visit the What's On Archive section.
