Our gardens are currently closed while we support our community through this pandemic. We will open again when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, please visit our website ‘What’s New’ pages, view our garden photographs, sign up for our newsletter, engage with our social media channels and if you can, make a donation to help us support our 2020 charities.

We started our croft garden 19 years ago on an exposed hill site of approximately two acres at an altitude of 960 feet. Our priority then was hedging, shrub and tree planting, keeping open views but creating windbreaks for herbaceous gardens, spring fed natural duck ponds and a rill fed ‘boggery’. Now established the beds are reshaped, enlarged and replanted with an extensive collection of perennials. Greenhouses and covered areas provide protection for more than 70 hanging baskets and our collection of pot grown begonias. 

Directions: Parking on the main road (A721) then walk to the garden (approximately 200 yards). Adjacent field parking may be available dependent on the weather, see signs on the day.
