The garden is approximately half-an-acre and includes a small woodland and shaded area with ferns, hostas, trilliums, erythroniums and many other shade-loving plants. The rest of the garden is divided into informal ‘rooms’ with large borders containing herbaceous perennials, shrubs, conifers, grasses, etc. There is one south-facing bed devoted to less hardy plants including agaves, yuccas, cordylines, aeoniums and tetrapanax. The garden was featured in an episode of The Beechgrove Garden on 5 September 2019.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
