About

Scotland Grows magazine launched in August 2020 – a brand new, digital title dedicated to celebrating real gardens, gardeners and gardening in Scotland.

Conscious of the global race to net zero emissions by 2050, we launched as a digital magazine which uses no paper or ink in production and covers no physical distribution miles making us a carbon neutral publication.

We are driven by key themes of encouraging readers to plant and harvest seasonally; to consider sustainable garden solutions; to plant for pollinators; to eat more plants; to reduce food waste and to reuse and recycle in the garden and allotment where possible.

Bringing an inspiring and informative mix of growing in Scotland, set in a beautiful content experience, this publication is empowering the Scottish gardening market.

We want to encourage growth in all aspects of gardening and in the health and well-being benefits which gardening brings with features to engage novice to experienced gardeners; first time veg growers to seasoned allotment holders; horticultural groups to community initiatives. Scotland Grows brings you pages about real gardening happening in Scotland right now, from east to west coast and from the borders to the islands.

Scotland Grows magazine is set in a visually contemporary reading experience, with fully responsive text and images across all device sizes.

Individual pages of the magazine can immediately be shared by readers on all platforms to family and friends and, as we are not limited by distribution miles, the magazine can instantly reach across the length and breadth of Scotland and beyond, helping to spread the message that we in Scotland, know a thing or two about gardening!

Subscribe for FREE our eco friendly, fully responsive, digital magazine which will drop straight into your inbox and come and chat with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – we love to chat gardening!

Do get in touch if you would like to have your own garden featured in the magazine or if you have a business which would like to reach the Scottish gardening market through our magazine, website, newsletter or social reach – we are always open to ideas.

What people are saying…

Subscribed and sat reading Issue 6 with a cuppa. Delightful having an entire magazine that is well-written and focussed on Scottish growing. Can’t wait until the kids go to bed so I can read the back copies.

At last a magazine for us Scottish gardeners!

Growing a Scottish Garden

Just what Scottish horticulture needs. The more means we celebrate our diverse gardens, gardeners and our whole industry, the better.

I am really proud of it, massive congratulations to all the team! A proper celebration of Scottish gardening well written! Looking forward to the next issue!
