The EVOC Red Book

The online directory to find third sector Organisations, and their services across Edinburgh


Directory of local groups/projects who are offering specific support during the current COVID-19 pandemic »

In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.


Small Green Spaces

Our containerised mini-gardens are designed to be long lasting and easy maintenance. They will require watering and weeding though. If you’re short on time, or you’d rather not get your hands dirty, you can leave the maintenance to us. You don’t need to be in when we come to look after your plants.

You will automatically get a free check up visit 30 days after any collection is delivered and installed, but if you’d like us to look after your planters on a regular basis, we have various maintenance options:

Monthly – we will weed, water, prune, sweep and clean your pots as necessary. Rates will depend on the size of the mini-garden to be maintained. Most visits will start from £20/month, but call for more details.

Seasonal – as well as weeding, watering, pruning, cleaning and sweeping, we will update your containers with plants appropriate for the season every quarter. For example, we might add winter flowering pansies and cyclamen to give a splash of colour in the winter. This service starts from £30 per visit but depends upon how much you’d like us to do.

One off – call us any time when your mini-garden needs attention! Each visit costs £20 per man-hour, plus the cost of any plants and materials used.

NB We’re afraid we don’t provide a general gardening service – our speciality is container gardens in small spaces.

We will continue to support local community projects in Edinburgh by providing work placements for their volunteers. This may be work behind the scenes, helping to mix compost and plant bulbs, or it may be helping with installing and maintaining collections for our customers.
