At an altitude of 450 feet and two weeks behind the coastal changes, the growing season is shorter. By not struggling to grow tender or late species, the owner can enjoy those that are happy to grow well here and give everyone much pleasure. Snowdrops, followed by early rhododendrons, masses of daffodils in many varieties, bluebells, wildflowers and azaleas, primulas and irises. A productive vegetable patch and tunnel feed the gardener and family.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
