This is a group for anyone with a an interest in gardening or visiting gardens and exchanging ideas, and expertise with other members.

We suggest and arrange visits to open gardens throughout the spring and summer, including, usually, a coach trip in June to see some gardens which are open by arrangement only.

We alert members to gardening events and we help gardeners to swap and share plants, seeds and equipment by advertising these to other members who are part of the Grange Garden Exchange Group. In October/November in particular, we meet to take stock and then send out a list of  plants and seeds that are surplus to requirements and that members are willing to donate to other members of the group.

In May we run a plant stall at the Grange Fair. The majority of plants are donated by gardeners in the Grange and bought by them too, making a great contribution to the Fair and on to local good causes.

Some members are involved in volunteering to look after Newington Library garden and other plant around our street trees to keep these spaces looking tidy and colourful.

If you want to join this group or unsubscribe from it please get in touch with Edythe Murie.



  1. Do you know anyone who can help me with my garden? I can no longer manage it and it needs preparing for winter

  2. Dear Jean, 30 June 2019
    I use – and strongly recommend – Mike Turner, from Pencaitland, who does several Grange properties, and provides all his own equipment: not unnaturally, he is kept pretty busy
    You can reach him on 0187 534 0377 and 0772 446 6998 (mention my name)
    With best wishes,
    Neil Davidson
