About Scotland’s Gardens - Thorntree

DESCRIPTION
The amazing views from Ben Lomond, to Ben Ledi and on to Stirling sold Thorntree to Carol and Mark 25 years ago. The garden evolved trying to keep a "cottage" feel. Carol sold old silver never used in years to build the dry stone wall. An apple arch was given to Mark to encourage him into the garden. The lawns are mown like a bowling green (or to a millimetre) by Mark. The courtyard includes flower beds. The saltire bed was designed in 2002 when Carol stopped growing dried flowers in a 20x20m square. The slightly sunken bed, all that they inherited on arrival, now holds Meconopsis. And so it evolves, Carol is now making a wooded area filled with primroses and Martagon lilies. Do come and see!
