"I am just bowled over! I have never ever seen so many and such a variety of species rhododendrons growing in a private garden in this country!" - the reaction of an eminent gardener from Ireland. Craigowan is a hidden gem overlooking the Tay and Tummel valleys at an elevation of 600 feet. The garden of five acres has woodland, lawns and beautiful herbaceous and planted areas. The plant collection is mainly rhododendrons, magnolias, lilies and traditional companion plants as well as a wonderful show of meconopsis, and giant Himalayan lilies in June.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
