Threave Garden, "The Training Centre for future Professional Gardeners", is home to the School of Heritage Gardening. A place of education and plantsmanship, the garden has been sculptured by generations of students since 1960, resulting in a series of 'rooms' within the garden, each showcasing year round interest; from beautiful spring daffodils, striking autumnal colour and a multitude of summer herbaceous displays. Threave also boasts a fully productive working walled garden that yields a large bounty of home-grown produce each year for sale to the public and use in the on site terrace cafe. Champion Trees: Acer platanoides 'Princeton Gold'
