Gradual Gardens

Tesco has teamed up with Greenspace Scotland to launch its Bags of Help initiative across Scotland. The scheme will see three community groups and projects awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8000 - all raised from the 5p bag charge.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.

The public will now vote in store from 27 February until 6 March on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8000 awards. Please vote for our project ‘Grow Well at Gartmorn’


Gardens take time, growing gardeners takes even longer, our experience is get something growing as soon as possible and we can certainly help you there.
