Borlandhills

Description

This is an exciting hilltop garden created over the last two decades, with hidden corners and magnificent views of Arran.  It contains a surprising variety of habitats ranging from a bog garden with gunnera, primula and great clumps of irises to dry sheltered corners with fine displays of bulbs in late spring, magnolias, rhododendrons, azaleas and meconopsis. Roses and clematis scramble through hedges and over the buildings. There are herbaceous borders with many unusual Himalayan plants grown mostly from seed.  In the heart of the garden there are large vegetable plots and two polytunnels with a great variety of produce that provide for the family throughout the year.

Directions
