No two allotments are the same - and this is very true at NVG. Celebrate the Year of Young People with A Scone and a Song in the tearoom - then a relaxing stroll into the secret gardens of Pollokshields!
In the Gardens we nurture and care for the important things - we grow food to nourish the body, flowers to give us peace and enjoyment on those rare sunny days and when the weather changes we care for the wildlife in our ponds and in the air, providing safe and warm habitats over the winter months. We like to share it with the community too, at our popular spring and summer shows, and on Doors open day you can enjoy free access to most of the plots. Take a walk around and steal ideas for your garden, ask an experienced gardener nosey questions and breath in the atmosphere of this urban wildlife haven in the suburbs. You may be inspired to get an allotment yourself!
