Description: Opening on its own for the first time, this two-acre working walled garden is being lovingly restored back to full production with the development of the 'no dig' method to grow many varieties of vegetables with impressive results. The maturing herbaceous borders have the space to encourage drifts of colour and interest throughout the seasons. The walls that surround the garden give microclimate conditions, allowing for the culture of heritage and new varieties. Paul and Teri also have their own private Therapy Garden which is a beautiful space with serene water features, statuary, stonework and unusual plants, and available to visit at specific times.

Directions: Situated between Alyth and Meigle on the B954 opposite the sign to Jordanstone.

Other details: NO DOGS please due to resident cats and red squirrels. Paul will give seasonal talks each day in the garden from 3pm - 4pm explaining 'no dig' and other aspects of gardening at Balhary and swapping ideas with visitors. Note that the Therapy Garden will be open to visitors on Saturdays only.
