Canongate will be up against children across Scotland who will be wheeling their entries into the pallet challenge.

Canongate will be up against children across Scotland who will be wheeling their entries into the pallet challenge.

Pupils at Canongate Primary in St Andrews are hoping that their mini garden will make a big impact on the judges at Scotland’s national gardening show.

They’ve designed a plot, measuring just one square metre, that will go on display at Gardening Scotland 2014.

It will be part of the annual Pallet Garden Challenge organised by the Scottish Gardeners’ Forum and schools from across Scotland will be taking part.

More than 35,000 visitors will see the Pallet Gardens during the course of the event, which open at the Royal Highland Centre Edinburgh on Friday, May 30, and runs for three days.

The Show is the biggest plant sale in the country and includes the New Hopetoun Gardens Floral Hall, the Albert Bartlett Cookery Theatre and the David Wilson Homes Show Gardens Avenue.

More than 400 exhibitors will take part, selling all kinds of gardening essentials and a new Story Tent will tell the tales of some of Scotland’s most inspirational gardeners.
