Primula Garden at Reswallie

Current Openings:
Description: The garden started as a wedding gift of primula to Colin and his wife Iris in 1971. Colin moved to Reswallie in 2011 after Iris died, and he maintains and expands her collection as a tribute. Space was created to expand the original garden by the collapse of trees, the removal of Rhododenron ponticum, excavations in search of a family dog and the destruction of a rabbit warren. Today there are 45 species of primula, including rare ones, each with a sign including name, country of origin, flower colour and flowering season. These are planted among meconopsis, miniature rhododendron, hostas, various bulbs and many other plants. The garden is also in memory of David Lloyd-Jones and Helen Lloyd-Jones who died after the garden had started. The garden has been extended with more plantings and footpaths for 2022.

Directions: Take the A932 from Forfar and signposted to Arbroath. Continue about three miles and turn left signposted to Reswallie. Take the second right down the hill.

Other details: There will be a substantial variety of primula plants for sale.
