Step back in time in an oasis of calm at Dr Neil’s garden with the soothing sounds of the nearby Duddingston Loch. Hear tales of the bronze age hoard discovered beneath the waters in the 1800s. The garden, tenderly created by the doctors from scratch, was often used by their patients. Get up close and personal with the soft, rubbery needles of the Abries concolor tree and hear the story of the three sequoias. Join Scotland’s Gardens Scheme and The Scottish International Storytelling Festival in “Growing Stories”. A fun packed way to explore some of Scotland’s Gardens. See gardens with new eyes once you hear stories, from local Storytellers, about their creation, history and interaction with the environment. For more information see Scotland's Gardens Scheme website.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
