Dandelion’s ‘Unexpected Gardens’ will spring up on patches in unusual or (apparently) unusable land, all over Scotland, from 28 April to 11 September.

From the Borders to the Highlands, along Scotland’s canals to urban, rural and island locations, these gardens will show that even the unlikeliest space can bloom.

Each garden will have a musician-in-residence.  There will be activities, workshops and performances as well as the opportunity to spend time in a beautiful space.
