Students in Scotland are getting a cultural experience when it comes to landscaping.

Schools in Falkirk, Scotland, have been encouraging younger generations to get involved with plants, flowers and vegetables.

Some schools are even beginning to plant orchards and students at one particular school are entering gardening competitions.

Denny High students competed in the Gardening Scotland Exhibition of 2013.

The competition is hosted at the Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre and one of the biggest outdoor living shows in Scotland.

Another group of students are starting to compete in the Pallet Garden Challenge, which is a competition that requires someone to set up a garden from scratch but can only be one square meter.

The students said they’re beginning to find a new found love for landscaping and gardening, which is an industry they initially though to be dull.
