101 Greenbank Crescent in May

Chris returns in May to show her and her husband’s (Jerry) garden in May, the month they were due to open this year. If you would like to donate towards our fundraising this year, please use the button below.

The house is on a busy bus route but hides a fascinating garden on a steeply sloped site. There are views over Braidburn Valley Park to the Pentland hills. Paths wind down from the new oval lawn, past a handsome magnolia tree, to a terrace which overlooks a water feature and established flowering shrubs. Less common species include Neillia thibetica and dierama. Further steps lead past a scree bed of azalea and rhododendron to a productive area of vegetable beds and fruit trees. A neatly concealed composting area includes wood and earth piles as a home for wildlife. We aim to have colour, contrast, and interest all year round.
