The exposed location has been challenging, but compensated for by stunning views towards Ayr and Arran. Shelter is provided by an unobtrusive boundary fence, ‘borrowing’ the panoramic landscape. The crisp freshness of the well-behaved spring borders, with woodland gems, gives way to a riot of summer perennial favourites. In addition, an extensive ‘pot theatre’ of containers brightens the farmyard with seasonal displays. There are small vegetable beds and a five-bay polytunnel (grapevine, tomatoes, basil, cucumber and oleanders). Dogs on leads, for family farm walks through bluebell woods.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
