Attadale Gardens includes a water garden spread along the drive with Monet bridges and a waterfall, with rhododendrons scattered along both sides. Several are over 100 years old, and others have regrown after storms in the 1980s. There are dwarf rhododendrons planted more recently in various parts of the garden. The old rhododendron dell lost one of the largest specimens this winter but others continue to thrive and additional light will encourage them further. The many large rhododendron luteum or azaleas grown around the house produce a powerful scent. Colourful blooms flourish throughout the rhododendron season so do visit us to enjoy them.
Over half of the gardens are taking part to support open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
