Walled Garden Open Day in Association with Scotland’s Gardens

18 July 2015

Please join us for a special open garden event as part of the Scotland’s Gardens.

The Walled Garden at Hospitalfield will be open between 2 and 4pm with a Gardener’s Question Time style event at 3pm.

The garden is blooming and showing the fruits of a very considerable commitment from our volunteer Garden Club. It is their work, over the last two years, which has made it possible for us to proudly invite visitors to the garden. Since April we have been participating in Scotland’s Gardens scheme by opening the gardens every Saturday afternoon.

Gardeners for the Question Time:

Moira Coleman, Hospitalfield Garden Club and Garden Designer.

Moira Coleman has been gardening for 25 years making gardens in France, England and Scotland. She is particularly keen on walled gardens which is what drew her to Hospitalfield.
