6 Balmanno Park
(NEW) PH2 9RJ (Ian and Val Davidson): This garden is an unexpected hidden gem where flowers, fruit and vegetables are cleverly blended together. Some planters and homemade wooden barrows full of plants provide plenty of summer colour.
Heughfield Road, PH2 9BG (George Watson): This small garden is well-stocked with fruit trees, shrubs, roses, perennials and annuals and an established vegetable plot. It is a haven for wildlife with a beaver run to the burn in the wild section of the garden.
(NEW) Back Street, PH2 9XA (Mr and Mrs McGrath): Earnbank is a complex of retirement housing. The communal grounds and gardens back onto the River Earn with views to Moncrieffe Hill. Terraces are planted up with flowers, shrubs and some vegetables. There is a grove of manicured laurel under-planted with bulbs and seeds, many mature trees and a number of dwarf apple trees. A scenic mural fence hides a range of garden equipment. The grounds are a haven for wildlife including squirrels, many birds, kingfishers, swans and beavers.
(NEW) PH2 9AH (Mr and Mrs Gimblett): A big 'small garden' with woodland, water, rocks and a cottage garden to the front. Shady and very sunny borders with more trees and lawn to the back. Tucked away in a corner, a tiny but productive fruit and vegetable garden. All looked after and loved by two 'oldies', passionate chief gardener, Margaret, and her husband, Iain, the head groundsman.
Heughfield House Walled Garden
Heughfield House, Heughfield Road, PH2 9BH (Ian Cuthbert Imrie): This garden is like a painting, contrast, colour, light, dark, composition, perspective, all come into play. Deliberately designed for birds and wildlife this beautiful garden is full of clipped box in a formal garden at the front with unusual shrubs and shade loving plants in the main garden. The gardens surround a pagoda-style summer house. The house is one of the oldest in the village and has a thatched roof.
