Description: These gardens are opening with fond memories of Frances Shepherd; she had planned to include her garden at Windyridge, 10 Glamis Drive.
Greengaites 3 Glamis Drive, Dundee DD2 1QG (Elaine Lowe): A cottage-style garden with small trees, herbaceous borders and rockeries. Interest throughout the seasons is provided with magnolia blossom and bulbs in the spring, followed by wisteria, clematis and roses climbing up the walls of this pretty 1920s house. Further colour is provided in the summer and autumn by the herbaceous borders and rockeries.
Heather's Garden (NEW) 5 Glamis Terrace DD2 1NA (Heather MacLean): This mature suburban garden has a lovely south-facing aspect giving glimpses of the Tay and Fife coastline. The perennial herbaceous borders have been loosely planted with wildlife in mind. There are mature trees and shrubs, and a small wildlife pond provides a home for lots of frogs! A vegetable garden, with polytunnel and greenhouse, sits at the top of the garden where there is also a summerhouse.
Westgate 12 Glamis Drive, Dundee DD2 1QL (John and Frances Dent): This established garden, with many mature trees, occupies a south-facing site overlooking the River Tay and Fife hills. The tennis court lawn is surrounded by herbaceous plants and shrubs. A short woodland walk reveals a miniature knot garden, a bower and other surprise features. There are also rose beds and two oriental-themed water gardens.

Directions: Buses 5, 22 or 73 from Dundee city centre to the far end of Blackness Road. Glamis Drive is straight ahead and Glamis Terrace is a few yards down the hill, parallel to Glamis Drive. Please note there is no roadside parking on Glamis Drive.

Other details: Teas at Westgate and Heather's Garden and plant stall at Greengaites. No dogs in any of the gardens please.
