Current Openings:
Description: The hidden garden behind the hedge where cultivated and wild meet. We have no ‘weeds’ in this garden which is managed as a pollinator’s paradise. This small cottage garden also contains a sunny courtyard, a Japanese area leading into a tiny woodland garden and onto the mixed border. Both the fish pond and wildlife pond support toads, newts, frogs and dragonflies. The main beds are an immersion in nectar-rich plants and bright colours. Various species of cultivars mingle with wild plants such as ground elder to create a species-rich feast.

Directions: Located off the A96 between Forres and Elgin, four miles east of Forres - sign to Burgie Mains/Arboretum. Turn south off the main road and head up the hill, past the sign to Arboretum, keep left and up to hairpin bend right at the top. No 3 is the right-hand cottage. Parking in the field next door. Bus 10 stops on the main road at the bottom of the lane to the cottage/arboretum.
