There is a wide range of plants from trees to alpines, ensuring colour and variability throughout the year. Adjacent to the roadway flows the Drumbowie Burn parallel to which is a 500-foot woodland border displaying snowdrops, erythroniums, hellebores, trilliums and more, along with rhododendrons and acers. Near to the house is a raised bed and a large collection of troughs displaying a large range of alpines. The garden also boasts herbaceous beds, an ericaceous garden, screes, three alpine glass houses with award-winning plants, a polytunnel, a pond and arboretum, the last being underplanted with daffodils, camassia, fritillaries and crocus.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
