Abernethy PH2
The Gardeners of Abernethy
The gardens range from individual plots of a few metres square in a sheltered housing scheme to much bigger gardens with ponds, ornamental trees and orchards.
5 Sutherland Crescent PH2 9GA (Gill Boardman): Once a garden of decking, transformed in 2012 to grasses, perennials and structural shrubs. Silver birch trees, rowan trees, laurel and beech hedges, and golden privet on the boundaries.
7 Drum Gate PH2 9SA (Helen Morrison): An attractive garden with a young woodland with matasequoias, tulip tree, fruit trees, and a children’s Hideaway Cottage for bird watching.
An na Beatha 27-29 Main Street, PH2 9JH (Heather and Reid Martin): Situated in the conservation area of Abernethy. There is a small orchard of mainly ancient Scottish apple trees, vegetables beds, and a polytunnel.
Eastbank Cottage Perth Road, PH2 9LR (Mike Thompson): Traditional Scottish cottage, a third of an acre garden, walled and bounded by a small burn to the east and with erythroniums, azaleas, rhododendrons wood anemones, trillium and a fine display of clematis.
James Roy Court PH2 9HZ : A sheltered housing development in the old primary school in the village. The residents, working with thin soils and awkward spaces, have created fantastic individual gardens.
Nurse Peattie's Garden PH2 (Keir Allan): An awkward small triangular shady plot, lovingly cared for by village residents for the community. Nurse Peattie was a much loved District Nurse and the garden was made in her memory.
Struan House Station Road, PH2 9JS (Alan Fraser): Three distinct small to medium gardens in one. Two large ponds have been created allowing water lilies, frogs, fish and wildlife to thrive.
