Fehmarn, Bridge of Earn, Perthshire PH2 9AH
The Gardeners of Lower Earn
Eastbank Cottage Perth Road, Abernethy PH2 9LR (Mike and Elsa Thompson): Traditional Scottish cottage, a third-of-an-acre garden, walled and bounded by a small burn. Erythroniums, varieties of wood anemones, trillium, a fine display of clematis, rhododendrons and azaleas. A little haven in the country.
Nurse Peattie's Garden Main Street, Abernethy (Abernethy in Bloom (AIB)): This garden is dedicated to the memory of the District Nurse who served Abernethy. The garden aims to have year-round interest starting with a sea of spring bulbs. The aim of AIB is to make it a haven for people to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the garden.
Fehmarn (NEW), Bridge of Earn PH2 9AH (Mr and Mrs Gimblett): See separate entry in Perth & Kinross District.
Craigievairn Heughfield Road, Bridge of Earn 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.
Heughfield House Walled Garden Heughfield House, Heughfield Road, Bridge of Earn PH2 9BH (Ian Cuthbert Imrie): This garden is like a painting, contrast, colour, light, dark, composition, perspective, all come into play. Designed for birds and wildlife, this unusual garden has a formal garden with clipped box balls, and a pagoda style summer house surrounded with unusual shrubs and shade loving plants to the rear.
Inverine (NEW), Main Sreet, Bridge of Earn PH2 9PN (Margaret and Ron Cowie): The garden is divided into three areas. The first area features a rockery with varieties of alpines and heathers. The second area has raised beds used for growing vegetables. The third area features flower, shrub and gravel beds. This area also has a patio, summerhouse and pergola. Along the two walls are five trained espalier apple trees.
Oaklea (NEW), Forgandenny, Perthshire PH2 9EL (Liz & Ron Smith ): This was the old smithy on what was the main street of a pretty Perthshire village. Every bit of space has been turned into a garden full of interest for all seasons. Dozens of pots of all sizes from old cattle troughs to decorative ones and a raised bed bring colour.
South Dumbuils Farm (NEW), Forgandenny, Perthshire PH2 9EX (Clare McQueen): A small farm cottage garden slowly being brought back to life by a new gardener. Raised borders and beds, pots of all sizes, an old pear tree, two hollies and box hedges are the framework for a cheerful jumble of flowers for bees and insects. Wonderful views and an interesting collection of ‘treasures’.
