Sunday 11 September   2.00 - 5.00   Old Allangrange

Admission £7.50, children freeNominated charity: Black Isle Bee Gardens 60%.

The original garden surrounds an 18th-century orange lime-washed house. There is a formalish parterre in front of the house with loose planting in the individual beds, a terrace garden, lime pom pom bed planted with roses, herb garden, mound, orchard, all linked with various styles of hedges - pleached lime, yew, beech, box, holly, mixed.  Recently we have started to remove perimeter wire fences and replace them with log walls and brash hedges.  The hedges are treated with different degrees of formality. 

There is also a five-acre organic vegetable garden laid out in a Triskele form, with two polytunnels.  We use a no-dig system of cultivation within a permaculture design. 

Directions: From Inverness head four miles north on the A9, and follow the directions for Black Isle Brewery.  Park up at the Brewery and walk down to the garden.  Directions will be given in the shop.

 Homemade teas by donation.
