Description: This Dundee garden is on a fairly steep slope with steps and paths. It features a riot of colour in April/May with thousands of tulip bulbs planted over the years. This display 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 is a horticulturist, evidenced by some unusual fruit varieties including Saskatoon, and an artist. His art gallery will be open as well.
