Dundee DD2 1PS
Mr and Mrs John Stoa
Current Openings:
Description: This Dundee garden is on a fairly steep slope with steps and paths. It features a riot of colour in April/May due to the thousands of tulip bulbs planted over the years. This display then continues with Azaleas and Rhododendrons. There is a large fig tree and a grapevine ‘Brant’ growing on south facing walls. In the greenhouse John grows four grapevines, ‘Phoenix’, ‘Seigerrebe’, ‘Muller Thurgau’ and ‘Solaris’, used for his Muscat flavoured wines, and three varieties of tomato. John Stoa is a horticulturist, evidenced by some unusual fruit varieties including Saskatoon, and an artist. His art gallery will be open as well as his garden.

Directions: Turn off A85/Riverside Ave. at roundabout towards Dundee Botanic Gdns. Pass the Botanics, road bears left and becomes Perth Road. Right onto Invergowrie Drive and first left on Menzieshill Road. Buses 5 and 9 to the foot of Glamis Road and walk west to Invergowrie Drive. In Menzieshill Road look for the garden with the prominent white stemmed birch tree.

Other details: There will be some plants for sale, and also an opportunity to sample some of John’s wines made from his grapes, fruit bushes and the Saskatoon berries he grows.
