Hospitalfield Gardens Opening & Plant Sale

Date: Saturday 8 July 2023

Hospitalfield Gardens, oh Hospitalfield Gardens will be opening on Saturday 8th July 2022, from 11am until 4pm for Scotland’s Gardens Scheme.  There will be a plant sale at this opening. In 2021 the walled garden at Hospitalfield was comprehensively redeveloped to a design by celebrated garden designer and plantsman, Nigel Dunnett. The new garden tells the 800-year horticultural story of this extraordinary site from its monastic origins in the 13th century through to the Victorian passion for ferns. You will be able to explore the garden in its second year as it continues to grow into its inspirational design, full of diverse textures and striking colours. The house that overlooks the garden was remodelled in the 19th century by Elizabeth Allan-Fraser and her husband, the artist Patrick Allan-Fraser, who designed their home in the Arts and Crafts style. Their fernery, which sits within the walled garden, has been restored and re-planted with ferns from all over the world and will also be open for visitors.
