The Limes

 

The Limes with Glenlivet

Description

This one and a quarter acre plantsman's garden has a variety of different plant habitats: woodland, dry sunny gravel beds, rock garden, crevice garden and mixed perennial and shrub borders.  There is also a large productive vegetable garden.  The McHales like to grow most of their plants from seed obtained through various international seed exchanges.  You can expect to see a large number of unusual and exciting plants. In June the meconopsis should be at their best.
