One of two polytunnels produces figs, peaches and pumpkins while the other houses a collection of hostas, wrestling for space with seed-grown rhododendrons. Native trees form the backbone of the woodland garden, providing shelter for a range of shrubs and herbaceous plants from around the world. In the new, windswept garden, an embryonic shelterbelt is struggling to protect recent plantings. More details and photos can be found on the Airdlin website.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
