Scotland Grows Show S1-E03, with Lizzie and Malcolm Schofield of Cuthbertsbrae Garden

Welcome to the Scotland Grows Show, the podcast which celebrates everything that is good in Scottish gardening, as we join gardeners around the country to find out what grows well where they are, and pick up tips and stories along the way.


Our guests in this episode are Lizzie and Malcolm Schofield of Cuthbertsbrae Garden in Buckie, Moray, winners of the Gardeners' World 'Garden of the Year' 2020. Lizzie and Malcolm talk about how they started out with no gardening knowledge, the challenges of gardening in an exposed coastal garden on a steep slope, their complete amazement at being shortlisted, and then going on to win the 'Garden of the Year' competition, opening their garden for charity, their favourite plants (on which they don't agree), and their entry into the Scottish Garden Design Competition at Scone Palace Garden Fair on 2nd and 3rd June 2023.


You can visit their garden on 1st and 2nd July 2023 under Scotland's Garden Scheme, and follow their gardening journey on Instagram @cuthbertsbrae_garden.
