Colinton Garden Club was established over 40 years ago. The Garden Club members share their love of gardening, gardens and nature, and work together to preserve and add value to our quality of life here in the south-west of Edinburgh, close to the Pentland Hills. We meet regularly to hear excellent speakers, take part in organised outings, enjoy social events, and warmly welcome new members to our club. For information on how to join, please visit the Membership Page.
