Garden open season is in full swing, and this year gardeners of Fife are throwing open their garden gates for a Summer Trail. There will be eight gardens open over the fortnight, showcasing very different, and wonderful designs. From a baby Victorian walled garden with mixed borders and fruit trees at Gordonshall Farm, to a later Edwardian landscaped garden with stunning views, rockeries and water features, including a granite grotto with waterfall pool (The Tower). The air will be heavy the perfume from the English roses at Straiton Farmhouse, which flourish alongside their tree peonies. Visitors can enjoy meandering among the island beds and overflowing borders (Kenly Green Farm), down a crab apple and rose tunnel or pleached lime avenue in the walled garden at Millfield House.
