The amazing views from Ben Lomond to Ben Ledi and on to Stirling sold Thorntree to Carol and Mark 25 years ago. The garden evolved while trying to keep a ‘cottage’ feel. Carol sold old silver, which had not been used in years, to build the dry stone wall. An apple arch was given to Mark to encourage him into the garden. The lawns are mown like a bowling green (or to a millimetre) by Mark. The courtyard includes flower beds. The saltire bed was designed in 2002 when Carol stopped growing dried flowers in a 20x20 metre square. The slightly sunken bed, all that they inherited on arrival, now holds meconopsis. Carol is now making a wooded area filled with primroses and Martagon lilies. Do come and see!
