Edible Borders

Join us in a unique project to create edible borders!

Whether you have a window ledge or garden, why not replace traditional bedding plants with vegetables and herbs?  You could create beautiful spaces which also provide healthy, locally grown and seasonal produce for you to enjoy. 

To inspire and help you create your own edible border, our Land Services team have transformed seven sites across Stirling in a unique growing experiment. All of the produce from these beds will be donated to the Salvation Army.

What's Growing?

We've planted leeks, onions, turnips, potatoes, carrots, peas, cabbages, 1000 French Marigolds, strawberries, courgettes and a pocket of annual bedding Begonia Semperflorens.

Keeping Updated

We'll be posting regular updates about our edible borders on our social media channels so make sure you follow us for all the latest news. We want to know what you think about our edible borders so share your thoughts and pictures with us using #edibleborders on our Facebook and Twitter.
