Glamis Castle Walled Garden Restoration project

For anyone who does know I and my friend Karen have got involved in the restoration project .
Karen and I go a Tuesday and a Thursday to volunteer.So if anyone is planning a visit over Spring that is if we see Spring or we may go right into Summer.
Come and see us up in the Walled Garden Project we are helping the fulltime staff to restore the walled garden .
We have been sowing seeds in the Potting Shed and prinking out seedlings in the Glasshouse.
Today we were hopeing to make a start with planting plants for the making of a herbaceous border.But on hold till weather changes.
We and all the country are in middle of a cold spell and yes snow .
Pretty to see but time to see Spring blooms and new born lambs.
What a pleasure today it was for me to see 3 deer and they stopped and looked at me camera was not at reach and the beautiful Highland Cattle.
If you have never visited the Castle and gardens if you come to Scotland you must

visit.

  • Ohhhh, I am at Glamis a fair bit so I will need to look out for a wee scotcatimage Brilliant. Im in Fife and I have discovered last night that there ia a walled garden which has underground tunnels which used to have fires in to keep the plants warm in the ground. It was a local plant specialist, David Douglas that used to travel and collect plants from hotter climates and built a collection just up the road image They are startin to restore it so am looking into how to volunteer

    I would like to know what is going to be planted, or perhaps already has been, on that nice wide arch over the path there.... perhaps you could tell me at some point..? I love archways and what people decide on regards their plantings...
