The Garden at the Auld Post Office B&B - NEW FOR 2017

Description

Surrounded by eight acres of Alaskan Lodgepole pine trees, this secluded garden has a variety of beds and borders containing evergreen plants, shrubs, grasses and perennials. Ten years and younger, the one-third acre garden provides a meandering walk under the pergola to beds set in the lawn. The fish share their new pond with grasses and lilies and the garden walk continues beneath 20 year old pine trees, under-planted with shade loving perennials.   Heather, junipers and conifers provide an all year centrepiece.    There are many seating areas to rest awhile, and for the hardy, a stout footwear walk can be taken through the surrounding woodland. Planting has been chosen to encourage bees, birds and butterflies and the hens potter in their woodland enclosure.
