  1. What a great idea, Cat. Some of the most interesting blogs are from Scotland. A few of these are new to me so I will enjoy exploring. An interesting footnote is that my husband went to John Stoa's art class in Dundee. He has a wonderful "Dublin Bay" rose growing up the front of his house!

  2. Thankyou Cat for including my blog on your list. I'm really surprised at how many other scottish garden blogs I've never visited yet!

  3. Hello again Cat, sorry to be so long in popping by to say thanks for adding my blog to your list :-)

    I agree with Janet, a great idea. If I'm not mistaken, this list has grown since I last looked! Again, like Janet there are some blogs known to me but others I look forward to discovering.

    Just to say, Perthshire is my location. I'm not in Perth. Oh yes... and I'm looking forward to browsing your blog too :-D

  4. Hallo Cat, I'm late as always, but can I echo Janet, Rosie and Shirl in saying this is a great idea? I too am surprised to see so many Scottish blogs I hadn't visited. I'm particularly pleased to see the island blogs, I hope to get some tips for gardening in high salt winds! Afraid I can't make any recommendations, you've mentioned all the Scottish blogs I enjoy (Yan waves at Janet, Rosie and Shirl).

  5. Thank you ladies for your encouragement and your awesome blogs,

  6. Hi Cat
    I missed your comment on my new blog until now. Thank you. Yes, I'd welcome the opportunity to be listed. Best wishes.


  7. It would be really good to see some of these Scottish Garden Bloggers on
    A BRAND NEW site for Gardening Blogs.
    All are welcome especially if you are in search of new readers.

  8. A great idea to gather Scottish blogs in one place.
