Free for Alls are Dandelion’s mini-festivals of growing, touring between May and July: from Hawick to Helensburgh, Govan to Leven. You can just turn up on the day with no need to book, and both admission and plants will be – yes! – absolutely free.

We’ll give you everything you need to get growing in seed beds and plant pots, gardens and window boxes: wherever you can and however you like. Our friendly Growing Team from Scotland’s Rural College will be on hand to help you get started, and novice growers are especially welcome! And we’ll also be joined by our Flower Singer – at five metres tall, a truly unmissable sight…

Join us at your nearest Free for All to get growing. And then when summer turns to autumn, come together with the growing community at your local Harvest to share what you’ve grown this year.
