Auldbyres Farm Garden

Coylton KA6 6HG
Marshall and Sue Veitch
This exposed location has been challenging but compensated for by stunning views towards Arran. Shelter is provided by an unobtrusive boundary fence, ‘borrowing’ the panoramic landscape. Surrounded by a working farm, the garden has mature shrubs, wildlife pond, bog garden and stream. Specimens of interest are gunnera, phormium, cordyline, cardoon, rudbeckia and cloud-pruned conifer. Packed with year-round interest, this garden reaches a July crescendo of massed phlox and hemerocallis, supported by key annuals of cosmos and nicotiana. The rear close protects a large container garden, where moveable pots ensure seasonal displays. Summer stars include tulbaghia, large-flowered fuchsias, pelargoniums, dahlias and begonias. There are small vegetable beds, a five-bay polytunnel (grapevine, tomatoes, basil, cucumber and oleanders), potting/nursery area and compost midden.
