We all know allotments are beautiful but its official now, they are art. The Compass Gallery in Glasgow in conjunction with the Scottish Allotments and Gardens Society are running an exhibition focusing solely on allotments in May and June of 2013. So why not get out of the wellies, get on the train and go have a look. Scrub your fingernails before you go. As the weegies would say "dont gie us a showin' up".
