From previously unmaintained woodland we have created a spring garden 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 colourful herbaceous borders enclose the lawns, with a central rose bed and small orchard. The immature pine and birch woodland has been thinned out allowing bluebells to flower and is now planted with a wide range of shrubs to give all year round interest. Meandering paths lead round small meadow areas, a polytunnel and organic beds.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
