On 13 November 2023, Colinton Garden Club and the Pentland Book Festival welcomed author and TV presenter Kirsty Wilson to give a presentation to enthusiastic gardeners in the area. Kirsty is Garden Manager at the Royal Botanic Gardens and familiar to many of us from the BBC Beechgrove Garden programme. The popular event took place at the Colinton Bowling Club and after the talk Kirsty answered questions.

Here we see Kirsty with (on her right) Penny McKee, CGC Chair, and (on Kirsty’s left) Henry Kinloch who chaired the session – Henry is on the Pentlands Book Festival committee and also a member of Colinton Garden Club.
