‘An enthusiast's garden, full of interesting plants, fine combinations and on a domestic scale,
which will inspire many gardeners. Worth a visit at any time.'
Ken Cox, Author of Scotland for Gardeners.
The garden was started from scratch in 1984. It was not planned on paper in any way
and has changed and evolved over the years. Informal in layout, the 26 island beds
are packed full of rare and unusual plants as well as old favourites. The woodland
part of the garden was begun in 1992 and countless trees and saplings were removed
at the time to make wide, grassy paths.
Two greenhouses and a conservatory provide homes for the begonia and streptocarpus
collections and the pond is a haven for frogs and newts. Featured in the Good Gardens
Guide, an RHS Partner Garden, and on TV in 1998 the garden has been open to the public
since 2001 and under Scotland's Garden Scheme for many years.
Lindsay and Irvine Morrison look forward to welcoming you to their Home and Garden
where bed and breakfast is available for garden lovers and
anyone who would like to spend a longer time in East Lothian and the Edinburgh area.
