These include a small Japanese garden, spring bulbs naturalised in grass, a mini orchard and wildflowers, a rill, a wildlife pond, mixed herbaceous borders, all within an acre plot. An interesting variety of unusual trees and shrubs, a good collection of rhododendrons and deciduous azaleas, a snow gum, a Metasequoia glyptostroboides and a Persian ironwood which colours beautifully in autumn, as do the acers. Plus a Tree Trail. The garden featured in Country Homes and Interiors January 2015 edition. Our aim is to garden with nature, and organically, complementing our beekeeping interests; the best planting scheme often seems to happen by accident!
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.
