About Scotland’s Gardens - Gardener’s Cottage Walled Garden

DESCRIPTION
The Walled Garden, acquired in 2013 by the present owners, has been planted with extensive herbaceous borders, box hedging, roses and many unusual plants. There is a White garden, an orchard, vegetable area, a long shrub border with primulas and gentians and alpine border with meconopsis. The Victorian Fernery, previously restored, has peach and pear trees, vegetables and a collection of salvias. There is a long season of interest with peonies, primulas and bulbs in spring to roses and herbaceous flowers in summer followed by substantial autumn flowers with rudbeckias, Michaelmas daisies and aconitums. Below the house a small area of mature conifers, rhododendrons and collection of ferns. There are fine views of the Campsie Hills and the garden is surrounded by mature conifers of the Designed Landscape of Carbeth.
