  • Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society - The Caley

    The Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society (The Caley) is Scotland's national horticultural and gardening society. Members include both amateur and professional, generalists, specialists and many others who simply like gardens and gardening. We aim to encourage and improve the science, art and practice of all types of horticulture and to advance education in gardening and horticulture for everyone.
    We have a new permanent home at Saughton Park in Edinburgh where we will be offering a range of classes, workshops and demonstrations to help you get the best from your plants and gardens. Look out for "Saughton Sundays" which happen on the first Sunday of every month (except January). There will be a range of activities taking place on the day including practical gardening skills, children's activities and advice sessions. Check out our website and Facebook page for details.
