Most of our activity is during the spring, summer and autumn. Please forgive us for being dormant over the winter.


At 5pm on a sunny Monday in June, we set up a stall in the heart of Pollokshields East to give way 50 tumbling tomato plants in pots.

The stall was popular and within less than 30 minutes all the plants were given out. Many people bumped in to neighbours at the stall, it was an opportunity to catch up and swap news.

Residents who had never grown anything before, asked us how to look after the plants and left the stall ready for their challenge at home.

Tomatoes can be grown inside by a sunny window or outside if they are in protected sunny position. Once you have found a good spot for them, they are easy to grow. It is simply a question of giving them enough water, so they can form the fruit. And it's the sun which will turn the fruit from green to red.

Come down to the corner of Leslie Street and Keir Street (Pollokshields East) on Saturday 10th October between 11am and 1 to pick up a bag of spring bulbs to plant in your front or back garden, window box or on some spare greenspace.

The bulbs will bring lovely colour in March and April for all your neighbours to enjoy.

We have lots of bags to give away to Pollokshields' residents (bring something with your address).

This is a project delivered by the Ready Steady Grow team and supported by Glasgow City Council.

The bulbs are a beautiful mixture of daffodils. Check out the film in the post below which shows you how to plant in a window box or directly in to the soil.
