Barnweil Garden

Craigie, near Kilmarnock KA1 5NE

Rhododendrons and azaleas thrive in the woodlands set on heavy clay soil with a dense underplanting of candelabra primulas and other woodlanders. Oscar’s Ditch, dug three years ago, is now fully planted with gunnera, bamboo, rheum, grasses, iris, ferns and hostas. A path leads from the lawn on the south side of the house through heavy shade, bursting into the Golden Glade with golden-leaved and -flowered trees, shrubs designed to give a blink of sunshine on dreich days, including golden acer, elderflower, philadelphus, ornamental bramble, grasses, hostas, etc. Nearby are drifts of 'Postford White' candelabra primula self-seeding every year, interplanted with meconopsis and black iris. Early variety roses and herbaceous planting should be flowering in the more open borders around the house lawns.
