Charity Garden Opening - Kirklands
Kirklands, built in 1832, has been the Hart family home for 45 years. Over the years we have reinstated the walled garden from a paddock and constructed terraces with raised beds. There are 18 espalier apple trees against the walls and box hedging with a display of tulips. The woodland garden starts with snowdrops and bluebells, then rhododendrons, trilliums, fritillaries, meconopsis, erythroniums and candelabra primulas follow. The rockery displays dwarf rhododendrons and azaleas. The herbaceous borders reach their peak in the summer. The bog garden by the Saline Burn is home to giant _Gunnera manicata_. Over the bridge we have 20 acres of woodland with a pathway by the burn. To keep the grandchildren occupied, Peter built a tree house, climbing frame and rope swing, though we hope they will take an interest in gardening too!
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
