Thirlestane Virtual Garden Visit
Join Catherine Rice for a virtual tour of her garden at Thirlestane, located in Kelso. If you would like to donate towards our fundraising this year, please use the button below.
Thirlestane is a large, informal garden, with some rough ground and long grass. It previously opened as one of the Yetholm gardens, but since then a nine-acre wood has been planted. This young woodland has a wide mix of trees, including some specimen trees. A spiral mount gives views of the Cheviot hills. There are two ponds and a burn. An orchard has about 50 varieties of apples and other fruit trees. Beech hedges enclose prairie planting in a formal setting. There is an enclosed flower garden, raised beds for vegetables and colour-themed planting.
