Woodland Garden

Our new garden for 2023 was the Woodland garden. This large area became part of the nursery when we put up our boundary fence 4 years ago. We always had plans to create a garden in this area but until we knew what our longterm furture at Whitmuir was we had to put it on hold. Now we have cleared out the scrubby willow trees and found and tidied up Birch, hazel, rowan and apple trees which are growing to create a mid story canopy under the mature bech trees. Isabe planted up the borders in spring and you can follow the path across the stream using the bridges we will build and explore the natural woodland side before returning via another bridge through the cultivated woodland garden. I am so excited to see this garden open at last.
