Shambellie Walled Garden & Nursery

Parks & Gardens

Beeswing Road, New Abbey, Dumfries, Dumfriesshire, DG2 8HQ

    Visit one of South West Scotland's most exciting new gardens. A weed choked walled garden abandoned in the 1960s has been brought back to vibrant life. In 2005, the garden was derelict and weed-choked, since being abandoned in the 1960's.

    In 2005 a major restoration programme began to rescue the victorian garden which had been abandoned since the 1960s.

    The garden was completely overgrown; trees, brambles, braken and weeds had taken over, the walls were beginning to crumble and the greenhouse was so derelict it was dangerous to enter.

    Urgent work began to clear the site, work the soil, repair the walls and save the greenhouse.

    The one acre site has now been re-landscaped and the bones of the new ornamental garden are now in place.

    The planting style is informal and full; mixed with a selection of hardy trees shrubs and perennials chosen to suit the cool, wet conditions of South West Scotland.

    A magnificant display now awaits every visitor throughout the season.

    Hopefully this paradise regained will inspire today and in the future
