From what was an unmaintained woodland we have created a spring garden criss-crossed with informal paths and with extensive drifts of snowdrops and over 40 varieties of tulips. Colour interest continues with a collection of hellebores, daffodils, narcissi and rhododendrons. A wildlife pond is situated in a corner of the woodland close to the ruins of an 18th-century farmhouse. Extensive herbaceous borders enclose the lawn, with a central rose bed and a small orchard. The immature pine and birch woodland has been thinned out allowing the bluebells to flower, and it has now been planted with a wide range of under storey shrubs to give year-round interest. There is a productive polytunnel and organic vegetable beds.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
