Maolachy's GardenLochavich, by Taynuilt PA35 1HJ
Three acres of woodland garden with a tumbling burn - created in a small glen over 40 years. At an altitude of 450 feet and two weeks behind the coastal changes, we have a shorter growing season. By not struggling to grow tender or late species we can enjoy those that are happy to grow well here and give us all much pleasure. Snowdrops, followed by early rhododendrons, masses of daffodils in many varieties, bluebells, wildflowers and azaleas, primulas and irises. A productive vegetable patch and tunnel feed the gardener and family.
