Glendoick was included in the Independent on Sunday survey of Europe's top 50 gardens with a unique collection of plants from Cox plant-hunting expeditions in China & the Himalaya. Glendoick's five acres includes spectacular rhododendrons, magnolias and meconopsis, grown in the woodland garden with its burn and waterfalls, the walled garden and the gardens surrounding the house. Many Glendoick plants have been bred by the Cox family, and new unnamed hybrids are in the walled garden. The award-winning Glendoick Garden Centre has one of Scotland's best selections of plants including their world-famous rhododendrons and azaleas. National Plant Collection: Rhododendron (sect. Pogonanthum, subsect. Uniflora, subsect. Campylogyna & subsect. Glauca and Cox hybrids)
Over half of the gardens are taking part to support open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
